Family. It is a big term and encapsulates so much. It is a lifetime of throwing doors shut, angry walkouts, sibling bickering and rivalry, silent treatments and imposed curfews. Somehow your immediate family becomes just a little irrelevant in your teenage years where you embrace your peers as your most essential social necessity. Add some extra years on top and you might turn around, surprised that you have never noticed the group of people who have granted you unconditionally love, regardless of the awkward family occasions.
Why start small, why slow progress? Isn’t it ‘go big or go home’? Weirdly enough, that phrase is incredibly difficult to place in a real-life context; I dare you to give it a go. Usually, this applies to bravado and you trying to impress a bunch of people. Down that bottle of vodka, push all your chips in at the poker game etc.
