That iffy balance with the family...

DreamWolf DreamWolf
When I lived with my parents, sis, grandparents, so I was around, it was like fighting all the time, and not because of horrible things, just two entirely different worlds and ways to see life...
Since I live with my Master everything is completely different, guess they don't have to put up with me, I don't have to put up with them, I live differently too, they miss me, I miss them, we enjoy to talk a lot, and just everything is much better... I also think it is because I am happy only with my Master, and it makes my way of life different, and just my whole mood and attitude...
But, the "chosen family", I could kill and die for Him, and for His kids, even His adorable ex-wife and ex-lady, and their mates, thought maybe not die for them, but for the kids definitely...

Do you have that fragile, precious balance in your family life? Or just hissing, frowning and snarling at each other?

For us, the hissing and snarling is the precious balance. Things could be much, much worse for us.

My sister and I share an apartment and it gets pretty rough because she is a control freak. I am way more laid back than she is and it bugs her intensely. I just don't see any point in getting stressed about things you can't control. You should just work through them and not let it bother you. That's how people have heart attacks.

My brother and I get along well when we don't live together. When we do it's a much more fragile balance and we don't often sit down and have deeply meaningful conversations because we end up arguing with each other. My husband is almost the same way with his sister; they get along great as long as they don't live together. For now, my brother and I just don't seem to talk much.

Things with my family are nice, but not like they use to be. Things have changed and it isn't that great. However I have no control over it and if I say anything the opposite would happen, so I shut my mouth.

I do get along better with my parents now that I don't live with them.

I absolutely adore my family, but they are best loved from a distance. When we live together, we're always bickering and fighting. We get along much better when I'm not living at home, and I'm perfectly content with that.

If I never spoke to my family again...heh. I do miss them, but not enough to call them. There's a complete lack of closeness and fondness for each other. I can't stand my brother-in-law and I can't stand my sister around my brother-in-law and I just think so differently and so much more liberally than they do that there are very few things we can agree on.

Yes, this is the case for me as well. My relationship with my parents has improved after years of being away from home, and though I love them, I'm so glad I got away as soon as I could and will not go back to that. My brother is the only person I've had a good relationship with, and he's the one person I miss terribly and have the hardest time not getting to see very often...

I get along just fine with most of my family. I've always been able to talk with my mom without much trouble and I get along great with her husband, and my brother and I got really close after our parents divorced, though he's married with kids now and I don't see him too much anymore.

The only person I tread a little more carefully with is my dad, whom I live with. I love him very much and we get along much of the time, but he's got some deep-seated issues with depression and a need for control that can be a little unpredictable at times. He's not abusive (at least not physically), but he can be hard to approach and you have to avoid certain ways of saying things or else he thinks you're "against" him. And from what his sisters have told me, he's been that way all his life.

I'm hoping to move out within the next few years, so maybe it'll get better once I'm out on my own.

I completely understand the relationship with your dad, there are people in my family that have been that way my whole life. One one hand, I am pretty good at walking on eggshells, but when they do break--wow. If you need someone to talk to, message me I am on here most of the time. I am glad you have others to relate and relax around, that does have to help a lot.

That's very kind of you. I'm pretty good at avoiding his bad moods, but if he ever does blow up on me, it's good to know I've got another person to turn to. *hugs*

I just try to be myself. If anyone can't deal the door is always right where they left it.

As long as we don't have to talk regularly and live around each other we get along good with my ex-wife and my ex-girlfriend.

My family and I get along MUCH better when we're not living together...we were always clashing. My husband and kids and I get along just fine living together.

I live with my mom and I kind of hate it because she's manipulative, unstable and passive aggressive. I'm very close to estranged with my dad because he's a malignant narcissist and his relatives are just like him. My boyfriend's family is wonderful to me, though.
