What is ‘Family’ means to you? Is it only for blood relation? Or is it the things that keep you together?
In my opinion, Family means you feel the same thing what the other members felt. Simply being happy when they are happy. Sad when they are sad. Even, it hurt you too when the other is hurting.
I won’t limit my family only by the blood relation. Yes, they are my family but I found that there’s another ‘family’ out there, those who I called my Inner Circle. We’re not related based on DNA yet I do treasure them.
We’re kinda very different, but what make me stick with them are the value that we shared and the love that bonds us. I simply don’t wanna see them falling apart. I simply wanna be there and walk with them through the valley.
Fight, argue and even hate, did take part in the relationship, but the most important thing, we love each other and we would love to see a better person they’re becoming. We colored it with tears, hugs, jokes, laughs, encouragements and even shouts.
I won’t say that there will be no fighting around us. A healthy relationship always has waves, either small or big, in a calm ocean. How we respond it will determine the maturity and how strong the relationship.
Just like in ‘The Smurfs’, there will be clumsy smurf, grouchy smurf, brainy smurf and thousands more. Sometimes, there’s even someone who is being like a b****. Well, that’s family.
There’s no such thing as perfect family. Each of us is far away from perfection. Eventhough we make thousand of mistakes, we’re still loving and covering one and another.
Family will stick with each other no matter what happen in any circumstances. We simply won’t give up our own family.
Do treasure yours and grateful with it! ;)
