Choosing family
Thursday. 11.22.12 7:06 am
It's been a while since I updated this one and I thought I should update it with something that has been swimming around in my head but I can't seem to tell anyone else around me about.

I don't know if I have some view fucked up view of how family should treat family and how I may have done something wrong in the past to deserve having these people in my life but I don't think wrapping myself around that thought is healthy. Not that it makes me suicidal but it certainly makes me do things I normally would not do, usually stupid things.

Lately I've been thinking of a reply to the statement "you can choose your friends but you cannot choose your family" - If a judge and a piece of paper can decide who your family is, then why can't you choose your family? I find that quite true and yet challenging. I don't give much of a hoot about filial piety and yet I cannot truly agree to that reply simply because while it is true, it feels so wrong. I don't know what is wrong with me... It's as for once in my life I am taking the middle road, not one of the extremes. It feels very weird.

I keep my distance with my family. Sad right?

While "You cannot choose your family" often *feels* true, in this society you don't have to put up with them if you don't want to. You can move away, or something.

Although around the holiday season[s], it's hard to avoid them as much as the rest of the year, if that's what you're going for. :S
