What is a family?
Family is not similar to a labor union where the length of a relationship adds credibility. I use a simple measuring stick: does someone treat me with as much love as I give them? For most of us, the answering is a resounding, “Hell, no!” but we continue to carry around the dysfunction like it is a cheesy prize we won at a carnival.
Love and be loved! Be appreciated for the special person you are! And that usually means redefining the traditional family struture.
