I’ve come to the realization that although I love my family, it’s even worth cutting some of them off that are more destructive than up-lifting.
Someone told me that when people (even family) tell you they love you, it’s all about action they put behind demonstrating it. It’s about them not wanting to call on you more for their benefit and advantage, but to make sure you’re doing okay benefiting yourself and doing what it takes to be healthier and more accomplished at what you need for yourself.
Those people or “family” that call for you to hang-out but don’t care about when you’re ready to go back home at a convenient time that’s needed or necessary. Also, when you have other things to take care of and they continue to try and make you work around their schedule as if your world should revolve around them just because they’re your family.
They want to spend time with you, but make it difficult for you to go back to taking care of your life stuff. For example: you don’t have a car, but they want to see you so badly, so they come and pick you up, but then when it’s time for you to go back home, they all of a sudden can’t bring you back home and there’s always excuse after excuse as to why they can’t hold-up that last bit of their end.
That’s the kind of family you keep to a minimum and tight limit because they’re selfish and love you with words more than action…
