What is family?

I just saw this on Twitter.

“Blood makes you related.  Loyalty makes you family.”

This blog is my journal. I just choose to share it with the world instead of keeping everything inside my head. I'm a recovering Borderline and have also struggled with Avoidant Personality Disorder. I also have Complex PTSD due to having been the victim of narcissistic abuse for most of my life. I write mostly about narcissism, because I was the child of a narcissistic mother, and then married to a sociopathic malignant narcissist for 20 years. But there's a silver lining too. In some ways they taught me about myself. This blog is about all that. Not all my articles will be about NPD, BPD or other personality disorders or mental conditions. I pretty much write about whatever's on my mind at the moment. So there's something for everyone here. Blogging about stuff is crack for my soul. It's self therapy, and hopefully my insights and observations may help others too.

    That really is very cute. And true. You can’t choose your family, unfortunately.

    I’m having a hard time with believing how a conversation just went with someone I thought was a friend. She questions what I tell her, a lot. And it’s about my own business. Invalidating. It’s like I have to prove myself and explain how I know what I’m talking about. And then I remind her of something she once said that backs up my claim and then she denies ever having said it. Must be a narc. Like I once said, so many from my past are. Probably time to move on from that friendship.

    Hahaha! The cat’s little face poking out from under the toque made me laugh the most.

    Even though relationships can be painful and awkward for me, I’ve committed myself to begin to make friends as replacement for family. It makes me feel a little freer, like starting afresh.
