Random thought

"You can't choose who you're related to, but thank goodness you can be choosy of who you consider family!"

It's a reoccurring thought I had again today, when I had to make small talk with one of my family members who came through the store. We're related, but if I had my choice, I would have nothing to do with her.

 Is that horrible to think that about any of your family members, whether it's immediate family like siblings/parents or extended like aunts/uncles/cousins/etc.? Or do more people feel like that than I think?

And the bummer is, the people in my family that I'd want to see waaaaaayyyy more often live pretty south of me, in another state. Thank goodness for texting and email!

  1. I know how you feel.. most of my family is arrogant and preaches things they never actually practice. They allowed sexual harassment and abuse to take place to people like my mother when she was a kid and never did anything about it. So, because of that, we ignore them and I claim my immediate family only as family.
