Family, Kazoku, Ohana,
How do build good family ties and close relationships with siblings, parents, spouses and other house mates?
There are probably several important elements in that recipe I do not have the answer to this question, which is why it is so enjoyable to entertain to me. I love to work on things I enjoy. So I set out by asking my sister
What are the most important elements for a good family? "God and Food"
My aunt told me that some families are in a circle facing away from each other each absorbed in their own passions and the thing that makes them family is that they happen to live in the same house. This family structure is particularly stressed when a certain member doesn't happen to have any passions to work on at the time.
She then presented a second paradigm. Her and my Uncle have purposely tried to build their family facing inwards where all the members are holding hands and what effects one of them effects them all. A good family learn how to care for and understand each other, they work through the passions and work of life together. They grow together and teach each other.
The best way I can think of to try to improve your family is to make it one of your goals every morning
when you wake up think of a few ways you can improve your family life. Talk to your family members individually and let them know that you want to improve family life and ask for their input.
Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success.
Thanks for reading
