Oh, family. The people we can rely on (to embarrass us). The people who love us unconditionally (as long as we follow the plan they have set out for our lives). The people who always have our best interest at heart (and that’s why we’re so concerned you don’t have a boyfriend yet, honey).
Whether you have a big family or a very small one, see your family all the time or only on special occasions, are very close with your relatives or barely know them at all — all families have these things in common.
Yes, we love our families. But they’re very good at making us shake our head in dismay or just stare into space wondering how we got to this place in our lives.
