THIS WEEK: Family vs. relatives
I'm wondering how many of you reading this are wondering
"what could she possibly have to say about family".
You continue with the thoughts
"Well yes, there are family members I don't want to be around
BUT they are family, I have no choice".
Wrong on both counts.
They may not be family even if they are relatives & you ALWAYS have a choice.
Definition of relative: You didn't choose them &
Person who is accidentally related they didn't choose you.
by birth, adoption or marriage; You do get to choose
may or may not be family. your relationship
You have no ability to change relatives into the kind of family you want them to be.
Letting go of unhealthy relatives may allow them to change
& come back to your life at a later time.
Don't gamble on relatives.
You can't reach for family as long as you cling to relatives.
Definition of FAMILY:
Person who shares your values & interests &
treats you with love, kindness, respect & honor; may or may not be a relative.
The brother (brother) you can't imagine not having in you life.
The co-worker (non-relative)
you met more than 35 years ago
who is your loving, supportive sister.
She shares your interest in jazz
and picnics with the kids.
It's the neighbor down the block.
The person in your
church, synagogue or mosque.
The person you met while doing community service
or walking the treadmill next to you.
YOU DESERVE FAMILY.
CREATE ONE, NOW!
Next week Elevator 29 will explore "Holidays & Rituals" & how we get to choose.
You really aren't stuck being with relatives when you don't want to be.
Only family deserves your time & attention. And so do you.
