Some people on here seem to have a good family who cares about them.
Likewise people on the family forum care enough to be on the family forum.
And I used to envy that. I wished I had it.
But not anymore really. I’m stable enough that thankfully I don’t need any family help.
My family made me stand on my own two feet. I had no choice. I made it this far in spite of them, and not because of them.
But now I feel free. Free of them, free of the need for them. And free from the envy of others.
