If you think that your family is the only messy one… you’re wrong.
i know how it feels. i have to admit that there are things in my family that made me feel ashamed at times. from mental health issues to alcohol problems… the list is quite long.
but i’m mostly ok with it now. i learnt that my family is not me, and that i shouldn’t be ashamed if they make the wrong decisions of behave in a way that i don’t agree with. it’s their responsibility, not mine.
my responsibility is to make sure that i don’t follow those negative patterns and don’t commit the same mistakes.
it’s not easy. after all, our family should be a strong base. they should be people that we can love and trust… but things are not that simple in life.
so just remember this one thing when you feel uncomfortable because of your family: you are not them.
take responsibility for your own decisions and try to accept your family the way they are. you are not the one who’s responsible for changing them.
