One of the many beautiful sunsets I get to see straight from my living room each night. I do not take it for granted.
Is your network of friends more important then your family?
As they say, Is blood thicker then water? I don't know anymore.
I grew up in a home and family where it was taught that family came first.
Yes, there may be a crazy one here or there, but it didn't matter.
You stuck to your guns, and you knew where your loyalty laid.
It wasn't even something you had to think about. Am I wrong?
Now that I think about it, maybe I wasn't taught this.
Maybe it was just something I saw and followed suit.
At my ripe old age of 35 1/2, I've come to see that what you preach really isn't the case.
Is it one of those, Do as I say, not what I do speeches?
Maybe times are changing, and values are different? I think that could be the case.
On the flip side, maybe some people really just don't like their family?
Their network of friends could be their newly created family?
I have a hard time digesting this though, no one else got to choose their family -
fair is fair.
I am not trying to be judgemental, I really just want to understand.
And maybe that's just it, maybe there is no right or wrong answer -
Maybe I need to come up with my own answer.
In closing, I would just have to say for me ...
Once you shun your family for your so called network,
don't expect my loyalty.
You drew your line. I saw it.
