It is a cliché but it really it is true you can’t choose your family. I’m pretty happy with the lot I got so I’m not about to go and get rid of them anytime soon. The real question is whether the feeling is mutual.
This is why family is more important than friends, you can be close to a number of people who don’t really share the same interests but you still keep going back to them. You may choose your friends on what they do or say, but family exists on different bonds.
I get on with them because of the differences we have, should they be strangers then in all likelihood we wouldn’t be as close. That makes the fact we are close more important and special.
I know that it is possible to have a close relationship with someone new as I have Mrs G, but we came together because of our interests.
Just like myself, tonight’s post is a little short because I am spending time with family and friends.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Delayed Contact.”
How would you get along with your sibling(s), parent(s), or any other person you’ve known for a long time — if you only met them for the first time today?
(Thanks for the prompt suggestion, LisaListed!)
