Matthew 12:47 – Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.”
I long for the day when I knew I could count on my family’s support. Sometimes our friends can be our bigger support system. It may be that you’re going to have to stay away from the subject and simply not tell them. It breaks my heart when I make that choice. And it may break our family’s heart when we don’t tell them what’s going on. Whatever choice you make know that your family probably does love you. It just may feel like we don’t have their support when they are just looking for what will be the best choice for us. Feel open to what your family says to you. It just may be their way of wanting to help. But also, be aware when your family is angry with you and the choice you’re making. After all, it is your choice.
