I love my family from AFAR!

I can't live with my siblings. We are always fighting. My older siblings live away and I get along with them better than when we used to live together. The ones I'm currently living with are...a nightmare.

All in all, I don't hate them or dislike them. I guess...it is in the blood? to forgive and love your close family no matter what? I have forgiven my siblings a lot but if it is a cousin/aunt/ anyone outside my close family/friend/stranger, they can go fuck themselves.

Yes it is okay to not love your family.

As for me, I'll always love my family tho.

My cousins have disliked me for as long as I can remember so yeah I think it's okay to not love your family. I tolerate them and they tolerate me but let's face it... we will never be friends. The people who pull the whole "but they're your family its okay" card usually don't have the same family as you, otherwise they would understand why you don't like them.

I love my family but not my relatives. I dislike my aunt. Just because she's related to my mother doesn't mean I have to love her. Here's the thing. If someone who's older than me disrespect me and my family, they don't get the respect back.

No. Why should I love those who abused me?
Posted 11/24/15
Heck no, you don't have to do anything.It would depend I think on the family! If your family sucks, then I guess not. If you're just an ungrateful bitch, mooching of his/her parents, then meh stfu

Simply, no you do not have to "love" anyone. You have the freedom to decide who in your life deserves to be loved by you.

In my case I love my family. But family is defined by me consisting my parents, brothers, their spouses and their children. I don't consider relatives as family. I would do anything within my means to support and protect my family but not my relatives. I might feel pity, sorrow, etc for them but that's it.

Hell yeah I love my family. I love my relatives too. All my aunts, uncles, grandmas, grandpas and cousins are chill af. Filipino families in general are just a bunch of happy/crazy people lol. Family gathering parties are the best. Lots of food, lots of familiar faces, karaoke, booze, poker, it's awesome possum m8.

I don't think its obligatory to love your family. Either you do, or you don't. Usually if you don't love your family there are very good, valid reasons why. Don't let others opinions make you feel bad about yourself. I have a couple of family members I don't particularly like, based on their past actions and words. I think most people, if they were honest with themselves, have someone they are related to that they don't like.

I do love them but not because they are family. Some of them I don't even enjoy being around that much but I still love them because they have done me a lot of good in the past.

I must admit that I do forgive my family members a lot easier than other people. Again I think it's more about all the good they have done to me in the past more so than any genetic connection.

Family is important because back in the day we were all on the tribal system. your tribe would be with you if no one else was and you fought with other tribes with your tribe. so its necceassary for your tribe to be toghter as opposed to being shattered its an interest of self as well. How ever there is also a degree of envy and hatred within the tribe when that crosses the limit then it is ok to fight with in your tribe.

but its not fun fighting with in the family unless you have fun fighting
