FAMILY . Do I love them yes…is it because I have to…probably.
I have an obsession with my pops. He’s cool as shit and much like me with the “not a big deal”, “better you than me” & “keep it honest” approach to living. I don’t have daddy issues one bit but I’m sure some of my ex’s wish I did or even may disagree that I don’t.
Are my parents together, no. They divorced when I was 22 and not in a nice way either. Pops had another life in DR (Dominican Republic) that no one knew. Do I hate him for it, no. I miss him though…terribly. I even have a little sister now who’s 7, crazy! I saw him for the first time after he left about 4 years later and was nervous, thought I was going to be mad, hurt…I was just HAPPY. Plain and simple. Just happy. Told you, I’m obsessed.
I am who I am because of my dad. Plain & simple.
Mom is special. She’s not typical. There isn’t a way she can be. She got married to my dad at 17 because well her dad told her to. My dad was a player from the get; he was a businessman with grocery stores, etc in New York. She never had to work; she got everything she ever wanted, including nannies. Then shit just blew up after daddy did some dirty things that could have gotten his head chopped but we moved before that could happen. Do I hate him now, nope.
Mom was forced to get a job for the first time in her 30s plus raise 4 kids by herself in a state that she knew no one. Mom holds a lot of resentment and I don’t want to ever do that. I love her but I don’t want to be like her and I think she’s okay with that.
My oldest sister…much like my mom although neither of them would agree. She’s independent, strong, hard worker but not tactful. Not much else to say.
My 2nd oldest sister…I feel like I’m her older sister. Adorable, innocent and the sweetest thing. Been with same guy since she was 16 (poor girl). I just got her into stiletto’s like 2 years ago along with a better marriage. Haha. She’s probably my favorite.
My brother…ROCKS! A lil bit of an exaggerator aka liar but it’s almost endearing because he does it out of insecurity so you can’t even be mad at him. I love him much and wish he was right around the corner. He got married and told no one. That’s hot to me even though she’s PuertoRican.

Nice story about your family. Kinda similar to mine but both my parents passed away. If you havent already you should go think about journalism. I think you would excel greatly.
