The people who love you and support you for who you are, are family regardless of blood. ~ Dave Spedding
Isn’t it sad that there are so many broken families? If that is your situation, there comes a time when you must rise above the pain and go forth doing what makes you most happy with people who sincerely care for you. Always keep an open heart for those that have hurt you, forgive them quickly and pray for them. ~ Gloria Gharib
Just because you’re related to people doesn’t mean they have to be in your life especially if they are toxic. ~ Mellisa Siender
Why care for those who ignore you when there are others who deserve your attention and love. ~ Cremhilda Tingabngab
I have disowned and been disowned by my true family in recent months, so I’ve been concentrating on loving and caring for my “other” family. It’s also true when they say “You can’t choose your family, but you can choose your friends”. I used to think that this was only true for natural families, but now I know it’s true for adopted or fostered families. ~ July Elfi
Never give up on your children. Sometimes you shouldn’t worry about the family who chose to ignore you no matter how many time you try to make them part of your life and they don’t reciprocate but when it comes to your kids, always worry about them and Never give up on them. I know they hurt us sometimes and it can be difficult but pray and hang in there.
