Family are group of people who are related by blood, family are the ones who you share genetic with either from the mother side or from the father side, family members are people you relate with, families consist of father mother and their children that is for nuclear family while extended family consists of father, mother, Children, cousin , nephew, your family are your Guardian they are the people who you look up to in all areas of life
I can't really say families are the most important, the book of proverbs says "There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother"meaning there will be some rare gem of friends out there that would treat you in a way that your family normally wouldn't.
Family, friends are all part of a community that from a society. Every body has a family, you must be from some where. Family are not always people relationship by or blood tie but some times very close association can form a family. Family will always be there for you in good and bad. While friends will not always be there when you need them.
There is a clear difference between family and friends .
Your family are you background people who you where been associated together either by name tradition.
Your family are your father,mother ,children ,ground mother ,uncle ,aunty all these mention above are your family .
While friends are people who you meet in places such as your class mate,your friend in church .
Friend are the people who you meet due to some reason while family are from your home background either from the mother side or the father side.
Family is a groups of people who are related by blood ,while a friend is some one who share the same idea or goal as you or you guys have similar objective or some thing in common.
Family sometimes are not perfect or what you want but family are always there for you no matter what happened they always got your back but friends are sometimes more fixable then family cause some friend are more closed then family.
**Life is good**
Nice topic dear.
Family and friends are a major topic when it relates to relationships..
I know there is a line between ones family and their friends, however there may exist some friends, however few they may be that could be seen a family, because of your walk with them in the number of years you've been acquinted to them...
Bible even says theres a friend that stick closer than a brother... Those ones should not be taken for granted also and should be treated with as much respect and love ad our immediate family...
Another thing is that, family also exists in levels and proximity.
**Don't be a good student and a bad teacher.**
First of all I will like to say that am not against family and one of most beautiful gift life can give someone is family and not just family but a good one.
I want you guys to understand that there are different kinds of family guys!
Most of you are talking as if family are some immortals without feelings that can't hurt or not want to hurt!. Have seen a family where the father refused to bless and attend the marriage of his daughter because she choose to marry someone he did not approve of and now she has a daughter and she is even pregnant yet up to now the Dad still disagrees and keep saying that she just have to divorce the man, what do you call that kind of a father or family? The daughter isn't having issue with her hubby that a third party is helping them to settle that we will say the guy is really bad for her in fact she is happily married and yet the father refused to bless their marriage! Have seen families that are going to the shrine to destroy the other, will you call those ones families or blood or you will be sincere with yourself and call them "bad blood"!.
In my own point of view, I will continue to stand by the fact that family isn't by blood. Anyone who perform the good functions of a family to you is your family and should be treated as such!.
Family isn't by blood at all!.
