Stay together just because your family? Trust just because you're family?

Many people believe blood is thicker than water.
They will stay with their family even if their family steals from them, lies to them, betrays them, is jealous of them, wishes for their failure, is selfish, doesnt help but holds them back instead, doesn't believe in them, sets them up for failure, and are just awful awful people.
Would you stay with your family just because they are family even if theyre holding you back?
Would you sacrifice happiness, peace, and a joyful life to stay in a family like that?
Would you sacrifice success?

Nope I wouldn't and I think my happiness and success is far more important lol

Blood means nothing to me. If a person goes against me in any significant way I don't bother associating with them unless I require something from them. Doesn't matter who they are. They can either exist to give me what I want or need or get lost....if they are a negative aspect of my life that is.

The only thing holding me back is myself. Hell half my family is the one pushing me to do things such as find a better job or finish schooling.

But I stay with my family due to it being my source of income at the moment though. If/When I find a job that pays better, and enough for me to live on my own, i'd probably think about it.

Also my family is lazy, so we wouldn't have the energy to steal, lie, betray or get jealous of one another. As humans we are all selfish so... yeah.

I found this a while back.

Blood is thicker than water, but maple syrup is thicker than blood so technically pancakes are more important than family.

No, not really. Good thing I have great parents! Yea, they don't understand some things, but everybody is like that.

My uncles (mom's brothers), had a horrible youth... My grandpa would constantly come home drunk and beat up my grandma and anyone who would look at him wrong, he would always carry a gun and point it at my uncles, saying that they ruined his life. He even kicked one of my uncles out of the house, when he was 9!!! Even after all that, most of my uncles still loved him, and went to his funeral when he died.


so, I always laugh, when my little brother acts like my parents are strict, when they aren't strict, at all.

All the sucess and happiness in the world that I desire is to watch anime. Who cares about money.

But, I hope people are not thinking of family members you have to sacrifice time and money to support. I think in that case, you are pretty much required by the universe to make sure they have enough to eat >_>

Hell no!
I'd love them as my family, but I'm not gonna stay with them if that continues lol.

Would you sacrifice happiness, peace, and a joyful life to stay in a family like that?
I'd sacrifice anything for my family, no matter how much trouble they are to me.

Would you sacrifice success?
If I had to.

Probably not, I'd move away. But I'd want to make sure I could support myself in a stable life before moving out. If you just walk away without making plans then of course things are going to go bad. First off, though, I'd do my best to resolve whatever issues there were. Sometimes it's better to walk away from a problem than try to solve it, but in a situation as important and even life changing as walking out on my family, I'd try to find a solution to our problems before anything else. Luckily I have a great family. Sure there are problems deep down, but as things go we don't lead awful lives and fight all the time, but if things did become super problematic, that's how I'd prefer for them to play out. Though I will admit, sometimes family is family, and even if they're wrong I'll side with them anyway.

I don't get to choose my family, why should I treat them specially.
