Growing up most of us are taught that family is the most important circle you will ever have in your life. We hear that blood is thicker than water and that family comes first.
But what happens when you feel unsupported by your own family?
Do you speak up and address it?
Do you accept it and keep living your best life?
In the Bible Joseph was mistreated and sold by his own brothers. However, when his brothers needed help little did they know that the one who was in position to help them was Joseph himself. Nevertheless, even though Joseph never forgot what his brothers did to him he didn’t hesitate to help them.
Are you like Joseph?
In all reality we all deal with this issue differently. Some of us hold grudges and disown our family for not showing up while others have the ability to accept it. So since everyone is different and there really isn’t a right or wrong answer I asked this question on social media to help us understand how people deal with this.

You see, there are different ways to deal with this. I believe that God has a way of placing people in your life when you need them the most. At the end of the day you have to do what is best for your life and do what makes you happy. Regardless of who is in your corner.
