Wise words from a great philosopher:
There are no ‘perfect’ families. Everyone’s idea of what makes a family is different. Some families are small, others are large; some are brought together through divorce and remarriage. Some families have parents of the same sex, some may have one parent, and some families may include grandparents, aunts or uncles or friends.
Some families seem to get along well, while others have more problems or stress. There are many things that can put a strain on a family, but when families work well and stick together they can survive these problems and even become stronger.
Talk things out. Although your family members may know you very well, they can’t always read your mind. Tell them how you want to be treated, what upsets you and what makes you happy. Respect each other’s privacy. If you feel that your privacy has been violated, try to stay calm, and remind the other person of how important his or her own privacy is. Let them know that you don’t have anything to hide, but that everyone needs some space and time to themselves each day.
The Bible promises in James 4:8, “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.”
