Families can be complicated, no matter how good people's intentions are.
A recent Reddit thread asked people to share the secrets they'd never, ever confess to their parents or siblings. When it comes to family, sometimes ignorance is bliss.
I'm really happy to only see them once or twice a year due to living 3,000 miles away. I just can't stand them. They all gossip and talk shit and spin their wheels so much you can't even have a normal conversation with any of them. It's all drama and always has been.
I never understood how and why I was so depressed my entire life, found escapism through alcohol and partying. Since I've lived across the country I'm sober, have a super awesome family and I barely ever see them, it's great. - GreenQueenDream
