Some things you can choose, but others you cannot, so you have to try to make the best of what you have where you have no choice.

what do we all think of this

Agree with chic85
You cant chose your family that's for sure

you can have ten wife's or husband's
but only one mother + father that's for sure also.

sure you can..
I accept I have a biological egg and sperm donor but they're not really family
my family is my wife. and we chose each other so there.

I know what you mean though.

I'm just being a "smartass"

you're right you can't. my biological mother passed away when i was six years old and i was stuck living with my father and stepmother. and trust me...i did not choose that...i really had no choice. i don't remember anyone asking me if that would be alright with me or if that's what i wanted. but life goes on and you deal with it.

I think that if your family is so toxic, at some point your going to turn to someone else and you can then "choose" them to be your family.

whether it be your wife/husband or that close friend whose parents are willing to take you in as their own.

Now, if not saying just blow off your family over anything, but sometimes you try and try and you really have no choice but to cut off ties, or they cut their ties to you.

Fine..
I'll reply to the OP . you all are no fun.



what do you mean?
what do we think about what exactly?

this is almost like saying we can choose to go on with our lives but we can't choose the air we breathe..

sure biologically speaking as of now we don't have a choice who conceives us. but we do have a choice in accepting a father or mother.
let's say your father dies when you are too young to realize but know that the man raising you is not your biological seed donor.
you can choose to accept him as your father or not. this happens all the time.

You can choose your family. My mom isn't my biological mom and her family isn't my biological family. BUT I chose them over my biological dad and his family.
