No matter what you are going through in your personal life, there is always your family to have your back. Even though friends are often available to support you when you need it, they are not as sure of a thing as your family, who are not just there for you, but there for you at a moment’s notice no matter what the situation is.
What’s really great about your family is that there is nothing too big or too small for them to take an interest in. If you’ve just broken up with your boyfriend, then obviously they will be right there and be the shoulder for you to cry on. But they are also there for you if you do poorly on a test at school, or just have a generally lousy day overall.
And even if you don’t have a particularly good or bad day one way or the other, nothing beats coming home and having dinner with the family and talking about all of your days and how they went. It is a special time to connect with everyone at the table, and to make lasting memories, even if they might seem small in that moment. Even though I don’t necessarily remember what we talked about as a family each and every day at dinner (which is to be expected), but I definitely remember all of those collective dinners with them with great fondness – thinking back to those times reminds me just how awesome of a family I have, and is something that I am sure many other people can attest to when it comes to their own families.
And even when you naturally grow apart over time, there is that special familial bond that keeps you in each other’s hearts and minds no matter where you are in the world. Something that so many people realize once they start becoming adults is that friendships do naturally fade with time. And sometimes there is nothing you can do about it – friends go on to do bigger and better things, or they just distance themselves emotionally from you for whatever reason. And while things such as geographical distance can certainly have an effect on the closeness between you and any of your family members, the inherent bond between you and them can never be broken.
As soon as you return home from whatever journey life has taken you on, your family will be there to pick things up again as if you had never left. And best of all, the separation you may have with your family will just ensure amazing stories to share amongst each other, further solidifying that special bond.
There truly is no substitute for your family. Even the loneliest people in the world, whether they are lonely by choice or due to circumstances outside of their control, will always have their family to fall back on. Even in the case of orphans or people who have lost all biological family, such situations just about always resolve themselves with people who enthusiastically take on the mantle of being their family, even if not biologically related. So long as you embrace your family, no matter how big or small it may be, you will always be in good hands, and will always have the strength to keep on persevering throughout your life.
