Family really is everything. It's where we start, it's where we fall, it's where we land and learn to get back up again. Family is the one constant we know we can go back to. Now, this isn't to say family is without flaws... Every single family has its own issues. Some issues are harder to overcome than others, but still, family is the place of persistence. It's with relatives you'll try the hardest to help, to console, to be there for. It's with family you'll forgive again and again.
The relationships within a family can easily be the strongest you have — they're meant to be. So this means they have the most power to nourish you...but also to create a lot of toxicity in your life. Work on these relationships. Focus inward on your family. You'll never regret spending your time that way.
When we take care of our blood bonds, we take care ourselves. We nurture something deep within us, something lasting. When we do this, it has a positive outward effect on everyone around us. And as we all know...the best version of ourselves creates the best version of this planet.
