What is family to you?

Micky expresses it like this:

I think about my family…my “family”…I think I have the most messed up family in the entire world. It was not fun to come home to the mess that was my mom…it was not fun at all…it was not fun to come home to what my brother has become, an angry teenager who hates the world because of the life he has been given…it was not fun to come home to a father who constantly reminds me how much college is costing me…
Christmas wasn’t half bad…for one whole day we could pretend like we were a happy family, I wish it could always be like that

Sad to say, Micky, that there are many more messed up families out there – but in saying that I don’t want to minimise what you live with. Angry teenagers are on the increase I reckon.

And yeah – if we could pretend it was Christmas every day – now wouldn’t that be good!

    I think you already have the answer which is to appreciate the good times with your family. Naturally you want more good times. Focus on college and on your future. I can’t remember who said it but it goes like the best gift you can give the world is your own life working well. Do this and you’ll help everybody and get more good times.
