Family is always there for youThroughout your life people will come and go, but there will always be one constant: your family. Families are the people who will care and love you through thick and thin, no matter what. They will always be there in the darkest of times and never abandon you. Your parents will always be at the core of your support system. No one loves you like your parents.

Throughout your life people will come and go, but there will always be one constant: your family.
Families are the people who will care and love you through thick and thin, no matter what. They will always be there in the darkest of times and never abandon you. Your parents will always be at the core of your support system. No one loves you like your parents.
There are many types of families. One is where the people of interest are actually related to you. Sometimes you and a person in your family do not get along, but in the end you’re related and can never get rid of each other. It’s better to just get past your issues, because they’ll be in your life forever and there is nothing you can do about it.
My cousins are more like brothers and sisters because of how close we are. That sometimes means we fight like siblings, too.
You can be tighter than spandex with your aunts, cousins or uncles, but they will never be as close to you as your parents. They’re the people that brought you into this world and gave you the life you have today. I feel very fortunate to have the relationship I have with my parents. I’m never afraid to bring my problems to them first to ask for help. I can talk about anything and my mom will always listen when I need someone to talk to.
Your parents aren’t just your parents; they’re also your guides. They do tend to be right, once in a while.
If you have a close-knit family, consider yourself very fortunate.
For some people family doesn’t mean either of the first two things. For some people, family just means the people they know who care for them deeply even though they’re not related. Swim season is when I get to spend the most time with my second family. We’re sisters and deal with more issues than most people have to deal with their whole life. For us, it’s the norm and what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.
families come in many forms, but one thing never changes: the love for one another. A family sticks with each other no matter what the circumstances and when someone falls we all help to pick them back up. It comes as an obligation, but it’s never an issue. When you have people you love and that love you back you could never think about turning your back on them. That’s a family and that’s something everyone deserves.
