Even though they are family, it doesn’t mean they have your best interest at heart. Some family will use you financially, some will mentally and emotionally exhaust you. It isn’t worth it. You don’t have to make excuses for them. You don’t have to spend time around them. It is more than okay to set boundaries to protect your own worth. Some family will be fake to your face and then make comments behind your back to tear you down. Some family act like they care when they have been behind the bad that has happened in your life. It is okay to walk away from people who hurt you, to walk away from those who hinder your growth, and to walk away from those who only desire to destroy you.
