Family is not about blood. It's about who is willing to hold your hand when you need it the most.  —Unknown

Apologies to the forum; I felt the need to re-post this given my strong feelings about it. During the worst times of my life, my family (except my kids, but I try not to lean on them because of their youth) has never been there for me. My true friends have.

And we will continue to be here. You are doing the right thing for your kids. I was "leaned on" as a teenager and the older I get the more I realize that I was a really anxious kid a lot of the time because of it.

Thanks, Kelley and Barry. Last night was just tough. Having trouble with a particular family member (my sister) who has been holding a years-long grudge even after I have apologized twice for my actions. Thank goodness I have some great friends here in ND, and on this forum, to hold me up when things get so horrible.

I should let my sister's unkind behavior just roll off my back, but I haven't mastered that yet.

I think you've done all that you can. It's up to her now. But if I had the chance to talk to her I would tell her why holding a grudge against a sibling is one of the worst mistakes a person can ever make.

Apologies and forgiveness work the same. They both let YOU off the hook!

- Me

I saw Newcastle United play against Chelsea at St. James' Park in 2010. I'd always wanted to go to an English football match, so that was a pretty cool experience. I bought a Newcastle United raincoat before that match that I still use.

"My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other's kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That's how I see business: Great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people."
