Family/Parenting » Difference between Family and friend by: Chiboy(m) .:. Mon, 19 Oct, 2020 - 04:07:38:pm GMT
Friends are never as important as family. Do not confuse the loyalty of friendship to the bonds of blood. Blood is very much thicker than water. The bond of blood is what connect the family together, family is been lead by love and not money. You can never buy family but you can buys friends as much as you want with variety of coin.
Family is forever, they are there in times of ups and down, thick and thin, feast or famine, they stick to you no matter what the situation might be. Thou family do have their own share of hypocrite and idiot, drunks, defectives, traitors etc. It's normal to find such people in the family, but this set of people shows their true character very early, so it gives you the opportunity to know them and take necessary precautions.
The problem with friends is their candor, they are not to be trusted because the slightest chance they get there will betray you and tell it to your face the reason for their betrayer.
I'm not saying we don't have true friends but you can only be certain of that when you have tested them. You can never know your true friend when things are going smoothly for you. They show loyalty and fake love to you because of what they are benefiting from you, and when they no longer get those benefits, they desert you.
Never put your friends first to family. Family is the most important in life. With money friends can be bought but family stays with or without money.

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 

While friends is a  person who you  get closer to in one way or the other friends are usually  a  person who  you  can talk to  for some reason or a person who you share   class with or some one who you have grown up together since your childhood days 
Family are you  own personal relative which  you  have  a good relationship with you can even  share the same surname, family are the ones to Fight for you in time of difficulty because you share the same blood

One of the most important  priority in life, that is worth living for, dying for, fighting for, sacrificing for, in life, is called, family.
Family is a very important thing, in the sight of God, and in society.
Family is very important in ones life, if you lost your job, or your business, whatsoever one might lost in life, if you still have family intact you are still a winner, family is not only bound with blood alone, but with love, the love within the family is very very powerful. The most important unit and institution in any society is family.

What is the purpose of family?
The greatest support, and motivation, will always comes from family.
The family, both nuclear and extended, will be the last place, one can fall back on when all fail.

It was because of family relationship, that Joseph look at his brothers and have pity on them, and refused to lock them up.
When job lost everything in life, the last person that was standing beside him, was not is friends, but his wife.

When one did not understand, the power of family, then he or she will be building destruction, in his destiny.
First our physical family, secondly our spiritual family.
Family life is a serious issue that requires extraordinary preparation.
The reasons why we have different kinds of issues, all around the globe in family and in marriage circle, is because we are not paying attention to the knowledge dimension, we are only paying attention to the emotional side of marriage.
Family requires, a lot of understanding.

 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.

 Before I list out the difference between a family and a friend I will like to talk more on this topic.

 A family is one who is related to you by blood and one who you have known all through from the beginning of y our existence. 
        A  friend is one you met on the way, someone who you met on and through development, someone you got to stick around with and know with time. I am not defining the characters and behaviors of who a friend should be to you.
  When we speak of dissapointments we tend to not believe that our families too are not left out,they are humans .That was why we were made to understand that in life you shouldn't put your whole trust in man,man here means any human living on the earth,what actually makes people think that family should not be mentioned is of the mentality that they have that family would always know their obligations and duties in helping each other so as to prevent themselves from being disgraced, only the matured, wise and the families that have love in them for one another would do that.Those once no matter how many times one of them has gone down or no matter what happens they will always remain there is no changing it,you can always predict how long a friend will come to stay if you choose not to be available, a friend can never be surprised at your change of attitude towards him or her,and they don't expect you to stay with them all through their lives on earth, except a friend really choose to stick with you there is nothing you can do of their minds are so fixed in leaving.
 Not all family members love one another genuinely, they may do things for you not because they love you bit because they have no choice, because you are family.Now come to think of this saying"Family is Family", it sounds familiar right but it sure states the only option as family have  , because no matter how hurtful, toxic, abusive or wicked their behaviors are towards you ,you still have three things in common that makes you family,they are;
 1-The same blood that runs through your veins,not necessarily same blood group but genes alike and same parents.
 2-The names you bear together, family history and ancestors.
 3-Your look and resemblance.
 There are times when you just walk out with your siblings,you may not be able to notice but people do, people notice your resemblance and that is one thing that you cannot get rid of so easy.
  Having loving friends and family members is one of the best gift a man can have, maintaining healthy relationship with these don't only boost your mental health but your physical health will improve, apart from the three things mentioned above you can get so much of love and care from a friend,as well as from your family members, friends betray which is so much common from envy and jealousy, so do  families a good example was Joseph and his brothers , Joseph was sold by his brothers as a slave even while his gather was yet alive , Joseph was the eleventh son of Jacob but because of who he was destined to become they became so jealous that he would one day rule over them and they began to grow jealousy and hatred among themselves for him, Friends kill one another so does families another example was two brothers Cain's and Abel,God loved Abel more because his sacrifice always pleased him and one day  Cain deceived Abel into following him ,Abel was deceived by family he didn't even think twice before following his brother and he was killed by his own brother, making him the first murderer in the whole of history.
  Anyone that makes a positive change in your life, anyone that is always there for you when you are down, anyone that gives good and fair advice, anyone that corrects with love should not be taken for granted,there are people who have lost good people in their lives because they failed to value the people they have in their lives,that doesn't mean that your happiness should depend solely on family or friends because once you start to act like you can't do without them then they themselves will start feeling burdened and uncomfortable and then the next thing is that they will try to avoid you as possible as they can,pursue after happiness in anything you do and always have time for the ones you truly love.

 Hmmm! What criteria do we use to determine who a family is and likewise what conditions do we put into consideration to determine who a friend is. I understand the fact that blood goes a long way when we wants to determine family but gone a the days now when we can actually limit our bloodline to be our family alone. On a neutral ground, we would limit a family to consist of a father, mother and their children and sometimes it can be extended to other people like uncles, aunties, niece, nephew, cousin, etc., A family is also a group of people related by blood, friendship, marriage, law, or custom, especially if they live or work together. But the question now is who do you make a family and who do you make a friend. As much as you don’t make everybody your friend, you also don’t make everybody your family because making a friend a family needs due diligence.
Sincerely speaking, their some friends that can graduate to be a family member, these are friends that have pass through thick and thin with one, they have stand with one when there is peace and when there is battle, some have even proven to do more than a family can do. So, people like this can be regarded as a family which popularly called 'family-friend'. You see, with my little stay on earth have realized that it is we ourselves that is bringing unnecessary mess by spending lavishly and thereby drawing attentions of those that are not worthy to be called a friend not to talk of being a family. A lot of people through their irrational spending have made friends with people that pay attention to only their money and nothing aside that, which means that when there is no money, there is no friendship again. So, whoever stand with you through think and thin can be regarded as a family-friendly. May God help us.

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.

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.

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!.
