I come from a dysfunctional family, and I consider it one of the worst that I know of. I’m aware that many people have a relationship with their immediate family that is more broken than mine, but I find my circumstances a bit hard to surpass. After a certain point, the magnitude a poison has is irrelevant; it’s still relatively unhealthy.
I have a firm philosophy not to marginalize anyone, regardless of the traits they have. My views on this topic are on the basis that scientifically/objectively speaking, I am fundamentally identical to not only all humans, but all living organisms that humans have observed on earth so far. I consciously aim to think and act in way that benefits myself, humans, and as many beings as possible.
I don’t want to draw a line between myself and my immediate family (or anyone), but at the same time I don’t want to continue subjecting myself to negativity; that’s not fair to me.
I am not absolute. The way I think and act is not perfect. Given my current perspective, I simply don’t know the most efficient way to address my situation.
