Blood Isn’t Thicker Than Water

Does blood really make you family or does it merely make you related? My so called “family” is so screwed up these days that half of them don’t speak to the other half of us. This holiday season has the potential to not be so thankful, Merry or happy, but I won’t let it. We will make the best of it with the few of us that are still speaking to each other. There is no point in allowing that kind of negative energy affect our holidays. Our “family” was just downsized by half and that’s fine with me. Less people to worry about. So, good luck and happy holidays to the other half. You know who you are. It is what it is!!!



  1. Was it always that way? Btw, to answer you question, it makes you family. My thing is that bad situations don’t last forever. If that was the case, there wouldn’t be no Tues, Wed., Thu, Fri, Sat, or Sun. There would be only just…… :/ monday

    • I hear what you’re saying. It wasn’t always this bad and we weren’t really the closest of family but we would all get together for celebrations and holidays. Looks like we are going to end this year with them and start a new year without them. Thank you for commenting. Any feed back I get will help put things in perspective. Thank you again.

    my own thinking is Blood simply makes you related and a likely match for anyone needing an organ or blood, Family on the other hand, is what and who you make it to be, it can be made up of various blood relatives and close friends and partner(s) alike , sometimes non related family is better and healthier than blood related family, but that’s just how I see it.

      I think I agree with you on this one. I have had closer relationships with non blood related individuals than I ever had with those who have the same blood running through their vains. You make a great point as far as family is who and why we make of it. Gives me more to think about. Thank you so much for taking the time. I appreciate it.

  3. “Blood is thicker than water?
    A stickiness that cloys, whereas water cleanses”

    From a poem I wrote many moons ago. But it sums up my experience nicely.

    The thing is – just because you share the same relatives/blood does NOT mean you are going to like each other.
    And why accept behaviour from “famiky” that you wouldn’t accept from others?


    • That’s true. However, as kids we were taught to love each other no matter what because we are “family”. We didn’t have a choice, now that we’re older, we do have a choice, and you’re right, we don’t have to accept certain behaviors just because we share the same blood.

    I am 100% of the mindset that blood does not make you “family.” Family is about an emotional bond, shared experiences and mutual support.

    I can say this because I am adopted and I have NEVER been curious about my biological father. I also have a step-son, who has been a part of my life since he was 1 and he calls me Dad and his biological father by his first name.

    So blood my count for something but it is certainty not everything!


    • You got that right. I’m with you. I ended bonding with my step dad and consider him to be my dad, whereas I could care less about the biological one. Thank you.
