Many teenagers, including me use to dislike our family when they would tell us not to do this, do this and that. Now that I am far from my family I regret not spending enough time with them. Family is the most important thing we can have in this world. We should be very grateful to have them. Miss my mum & dad so much

  • For some this is true, but sometimes you get a family member that is toxic and causes pain. It can be for the best to not have them in your life. I know I had to make that choice. Was terribly hard but when you have narcissistic people in your life, you have to be kind to yourself.

  • Family can be a ‘rock’ when you need it!

  • I used to think like this. I used to think family was forever, no matter what, I thought they’d be there for me everyday of my life……..until they weren’t! For one reason or another, my parents and my siblings all left me, one at a time. Can’t say I miss them, although my subconscious might disagree if you analyse my dreams. It is what it is and I’m coping with my partner and our 2 gorgeous children. I don’t think I’m missing out on anything

  • Family are so amazing , I think we only realise how much they mean to us when we can’t have them with us all the time


    • Distance does provide perspective when it comes to family.

  • Sound like you have grown up…….I am going through the unappreciative stage with my daughter at the moment and I long for the day when she realises that we only have her best interests at heart. We love her so much and only want the best for her but she sees everything as criticism when its not that way at all. I am so glad that you now appreciate your family and I only hope my daughter will get it one day!

  • It’s something I learnt only as I got older.

  • everyone in my extended family except my mum and dad annoy the crap out of me. But you do miss them when you are not near them!

  • True was just discussing this with someone the other day if only they could see the future teenagers would be very different I am sure but such is the path of life :)

  • I am sorry you are so far away from your love ones. also reading books with them is quality time you to spend with your kids reading

  • I couldn’t agree more. All of my family are interstate and I have been through some particularly trying times lately and I miss them terribly at times.

  • As we get older we seem to miss them more I think.
