Blood Family or Not

Updated on June 10, 2020

There are times in your life that you need to rely on your family. This can range from any type of issue. It can be for financial, emotional or physical support. Who else knows how to help you other than your own family?

Who is your family? Well, biologically it is the people who share your blood. For many it’s more than that. They are the people who have known you since you were born. These are people who have been in your life religiously. They are the ones who have laughed with you, cried with you, held you up when you were falling. They are the ones who make you cry & also make you shine. They know you better than you know yourself.

Family is people who share your life. Family is more than just blood relatives. Family is what makes you who you are. It does not matter whose blood you carry. That is relevant when medically necessary. What is important is the bond that many of you carry with each other from the time you’re introduced to one another.

Brothers, sisters, cousins, friends are all family. When you grow up together as kids, into teenagers then adults your bond grows stronger than ever. It’s something no one can tear apart or come between. The bond a family shares is strong. Anyone who has a family as such should appreciate it and never take it for granted.

Now, there are also people who may have been adopted or raised by a parent who wasn’t biologically theirs. Should this change things? NO, it shouldn’t. However some people may beg to differ. I believe to leave well enough alone. If you were lucky enough to be loved by a parent & family all your life consider yourself blessed. This will vary to many who seek where they come from.

Family is more than the blood you share. It is everything. The memories you make when you’re together. You keep them for a lifetime. You can gather together and reminisce. You will laugh & cry of all the times you spend together. At many times they are the glue that holds you together; treasure them & never take them for granted.

Now; When there is an “adopted or half sibling” who is reluctant to appreciate this kind of family. They will never have peace in their heart until they find what they believe they’re looking for. Simply wish them well on their endeavors. They may not find what was always in front of their eyes.

Sometimes when you choose to find where you really come from you just may regret where you originally were. Everyone should love & appreciate every connection you have with a sibling, cousin & friend because family is more than just blood.
