We don’t choose our blood family, that is a given fact. How we relate with each other within the family, it’s a totally different story.
If you have that amazing kind of relationship with all of your family members, when you all have each other’s back, I congratulate you!
If you don’t, welcome to the group.
My daughter and I have that connection, and it’s amazing but that was it. So we created our own tribe, our (no blood-related) family!
If you are feeling that there is no connection with your blood family, it ‘s time for you to take action and do something positive about it.
This is how we did it.
This is the first step. Understand that you can change the current situation, you have the ability to change that feeling of loneliness, of not being protected, into a mindset of knowing how to handle your blood-related family, and focusing on finding you’re own tribe.
2. Take action
Among your friends, have the wisdom to separate the ones that like you, but aren’t too thrilled when you accomplish something positive. Or the ones that like to make a joke about someone else, with no regard what so ever about people’s feelings.
Keep close to your heart that group of friends that never left you when you were feeling down or going through a hard time. The numbers will be small, but those are your friends for life!
3. Nurture relationships
Be humble to acknowledge that, looking back, you might have left some good friends behind. Take the initiative to reach out to them, their friendship is too precious to be wasted.
Nurturer your relationships, create new bonds with people that have the same priorities in life! True friendship, being there for each other first and far most, creating memories, stories, creating a long life tribe!
My tribe is small, but believe, they are my wonderful family!
Don’t you ever give up on your happiness, there is always a way. Fight for it, change it, get out of your comfort zone, and make your happiness your priority! You got this!
Thank you for meeting me halfway.
