  •  If family is the most important thing (4.00)
    Then your family members need to treat it that way.  Being verbally abused is not a family value.

    There's a passage in the Bible that I find quite interesting.  Jesus is preaching, and one of his disciples comes and tells him his mother and brothers are waiting for him outside.  He says his mother and brothers are those who hear the word of God and follow it.

    There's the family you're born into; and there's the family you choose for yourself.

    Too often, unfortunately, that's not the same thing.  Self-preservation dictates this must be so.

    "What does the Lord require of you but to do justice and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?"-- Micah 6:8

    •  Some of us out here (none)
      believe that the family into which you are born IS the family you've chosen.

      The life we create is full of lessons for us.

      Lots of great thoughts in these replies.

      Best of luck to all of you!
