The Quest Chronicles: Family Awareness
We are family! Got all my sisters with me. You all remember the song? I’m sure you all remember the quote “Blood is thicker than water” too. Do you know the importance of the blood in your body? The body can’t function the way it’s suppose to unless the blood is flowing properly. The blood is important just like family is. Charity starts at home.
As family, we should be each other’s first love, best friend, biggest cheerleader , supporter and fan. In most cases, it’s not like that & it breaks my heart. We have to break this generational curse because it seems like it’s only getting worse.
When was the last time you called you mom, dad, sister, brother or even cousin to check on them? Not saying “how you doing” & then ask for something because that doesn’t count. When you get to the point that you have to prepare yourself before answering the call from a family member because you know what the call is going to be about ahead of time is a problem.
FOE (Family Over Everything) We have to get back to that, especially if the relationship is there or fixable depending on your situation or circumstance. I’m tired of the “Whatchu want” tone when on the phone because the only reason someone may call is because they want something. I’m tired of only taking time out to visit family because someone passed a way. All of a sudden we start to get those ” I’m so sorry for your loss” phone calls, text massages & DM’s. You were not checking for me before so why now? Did you get a wake up call or is this just a “moment” of sympathy?
Yes, in situations that brings the family together should be a hint that we have to work harder to keep the family love strong but it’s temporary. It’s the same speeches every funeral but then nothing changes. It reminds me of church services where the pastor would preach, it’s relate-able to people lives, you hear them say “I know that’s right pastor”; “I know that message was for me.” Few hours later, back to the same shenanigans.
This has to stop. Life is too short. We mush bring back the love. We must make the time for one another. We can’t be too consumed with other parts of life. I speak about it often that life can be hectic and overwhelming but sacrifices and adjusting has to be made. We have to stop trying to make change when it’s too late or talk about it but then don’t put no action behind it. It’s a lose lose when there’s room to win.
Like always, leave your comments below because I truly desire to know how you feel and if you’ve ever been in these situations.
