- You do not have to love your family.
- Just because you are related, does not mean you have to love someone.
- If someone was shitty to you, you don’t have to love them. Period. Doesn’t matter if they’re you’re relative or your friend or a stranger.
- It’s OK not to love your family. Really, it is.
It really irritates me that when I tell people I hate people in my family their reaction is “But you can’t! They’re your family!”
Fuck you. No, I don’t. If anyone else had treated me the way my family members have treated me, I wouldn’t have to hear that from anyone. That’s disturbing.
If you have a good family relationship, good for you. If your family is always there for you, no matter what, good for you. But remember that that’s not always the case with everyone, and don’t give them shit if they hate their family. They have every right to.
i get along pretty well with most of my family, but i still get this. i don’t HATE anyone in my family, but i don’t get along with my dad’s side, and everyone seems to think i’m just NOT ALLOWED because that’s who we get together for christmas with. so pardon me if i just stay at home and watch american horror story on christmas day. i have the right.
