I had time to reflect on issues pertaining in my family and felt it would be good share with all my readers. I touch more in depth on family drama in my memoir, which is no where near ready for the public to see yet.
As I sat in front of my vanity to get inspiration a question popped into my mind, Why does every family fight?
What had been going on in my family is worst than drama. It's more evil I would say. My cousin, aunt and uncle began a family war once again, but I saw it as an ending to a bitter story. They are always the ones who start everything and being older I've been giving a chance to see things in my own perspective. I made a public announcement regarding this situation when it happened a couple months prior.
Not one to usually post about this stuff but a bittersweet decision came my way yesterday. One taking many, many years to decide. I had to close the door on three family members, an aunt, uncle and cousin who caused mischief, grief and heartache.
I can say heartbreak does define this situation, but so does anger. I let go of all of the anger, and at times I am reminded by nagging tugs of pain at my heart, but I don't pay it any attention because I know I'm not one to blame.
I have and will stick by my decision to not be in contact with them ever again. A couple years ago I made a commitment to myself to have a positive, honest and truthful life. Everyone included has respected my wishes and the ones who haven't are no longer in my sights.
They're are not family. My definition of family is love. People who don't judge you but help you grow. People you can trust and laugh with. One's who can argue but five seconds later are on a different topic.
What do family members gain from fighting? Nothing at all. Never fight with your loved ones, but don't allow anyone to take your happy away. It does take time, but the final outcome will be in your favor.
