I told myself everyday that family matters and I will always be there for them. What does family or family time mean? I ask myself about my family and how much I’m around them throughout the year. What I’m trying to get at is that I’m a seventeen year old male and family to me is anything you ever wanted double. I believe family should stick together, and or spend time with each other.
Now you may disagree or agree but this is what I believe. Why do I believe this? I asked myself that before I started writing this and well I grew up and family was always together parents, grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, we were all together all the time. Nobody could ever break us up. That I believed until my father got on drugs late in my elementary school years. After that good buy family very slowly.
Now that I’m a junior in high school and doing what I want, I still hardly ever see any family throughout the years. Everyone hates everyone now and I’m living with my best friend. Still I will always believe that family’s should stick together thorough troubles, hard times, good times, and every single holiday such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Fourth of July, and many other holidays.
I’ve never really understood why people such as kids don’t want to at least have one family night during the week just to talk or play games. I guess them rather hangout with friends and girlfriends boyfriends or something. To me they don’t realize how good they may have family that cares and loves them and that they may not want to be around disappoints me. I believe that when my family gets there minds together and we all start to be together my prayers would have been answered and it will be the best time of my life. I always tell myself that when I have a family in the future that we will always spend all-day at least once a week together and every holiday to. This is what I believe.
