So this question has been on my mind for quite some time. I’ve always hear this whenever I argue with my mum when I say that I want to cut ties with that mean aunt (I know I have mentioned this like 100 times) and she hates the fact that I always ignore her whenever she comes to visits because I don’t even feel comfortable around her and I always get this dumb lecture saying that I can’t choose family.
It’s just that I have relatives that I can’t stand and their toxicity makes me hate them even more. This also include distant relatives because they see me as a threat.
To me, family means people that always have my back.
Let me know in the comment section down below.
