There's no doubt about it, family can be a huge part of most people's lives. When there's no one else there, family can be a reason for happiness in your life and will most likely always have a listening ear. Family is something that no one should take for granted, because they are always there to help. Here are reasons you shouldn't take your family for granted.

They're always there to listen

It doesn't matter what time of the day it is, what they're doing or where they are, your family is always willing to help you with whatever you need. Even though friends are always there to listen, there's something about having your family listen to what is going on in your life that is really great. Your family is a great way to talk through your life where they will just sit and listen and support you in all your endeavors.

They'll hang out with you when you're bored

Whether in you're in high school or college, sometimes your friends just can't hang out or you don't feel like going anywhere, but your family is always there to keep you company. Whether you're just hanging around and talking, watching a movie or playing games, hanging out with your family is a lot more fun than you think it is. Take the time to hang out with your family because it can actually be way more fun than going out with your friends.

They'll be honest with you

There's no one else that will be more honest with you than your family. If you're wondering what you should do with your life, they'll be willing to give you their honest opinion on what you should do and helping you figure out what is best for you. Even when you don't want your family to be honest with you and you'd rather them keep their opinions to themselves, you should really value what they think because they have your best interest at heart. Value their input, because they could help you see a new perspective that you didn't see before.

They'll always help you when you need it

No matter what is happening in your life or what you do, your family is always going to be there for you and help you with whatever you need, whenever you need it. Your family wants to see you succeed and they are going to help you do that. Whether it's encouraging you to pursue your dreams or help you fix your car, they are always going to help you out in the best way they can.


Family is an amazing aspect of life. They are there for you whenever you need them and without a doubt love you for who you are. Taking your family for granted and not thinking about all they do for you can easily happen, but just remember that they always have you at the front of their mind. Never take your family for granted because they will always love you.

A Thank You To My Boyfriend's Family

Because you are so important to him, you are important to me.

This one isn't easy to sit down and write because nothing I could say would do all of you justice in the way that I would hope I could. These are just words, but I hope that I am able to always show my thank you to you by treating him like the prince he is.

I can replay the moment of meeting each and every one of you all over and over in my head like it was yesterday. I was so extremely nervous every single time and I was trying to gather all the "right" things to say that would leave a good, first-lasting impression and that at the end of the day, you all would like me.

I think one of the most important basis and hopes in my relationship is that my significant other's family likes who I am. This is so important to me because whatever is important to him is equally important to me and your thoughts of me are crucial to our relationship.

The second I walked in the door, I was overwhelmed—overwhelmed with such a love. I had no idea at that point in time just how much you would all mean to me and how thankful I am for all of you!

Thank you for constantly making me laugh and feel at home.

Whenever I'm coming over for a family gathering or just to hang out, I know right off that I am walking into a world of laughter and good times are right beside that. You are all so entertaining and always have a good story to tell me. I can't name one time where I didn't feel like I was home.

And I appreciate the sweet, embarrassing photos and stories about my boyfriend that you all share with me! Even if it is by a photo, I have a glimpse of what his life has always been like thanks to each and every one of you individually.

Thank you for sharing your special moments in life with me.

You don't ever have to, but you invite me anyway. Whether it's just a family gathering, a birthday, or a holiday, I am thankful to have spent those times celebrating these moments in life alongside such amazing people. It's humbling and heartwarming to be a part of memories so unforgettable that you all share and that you have welcomed me to be a part of. They are days that I will never forget and have a place in my heart forever.

Thank you for always being there for him.

Since we have started dating, I have watched the way that you guys love him. I have watched the individual relationships and moments that you share with him make a difference in who he is. I have seen you all love and support him, no matter what he was doing.

With everything that comes along in life, this has been a simple reminder of an unconditional, loving, sacrificing family that is also the best support system. You are not only impacting him, but me, too.

Thank you for welcoming me in like your own.

Whenever you have to brave up and meet your significant other's family, I can say, for myself, that I didn't know what to expect. As I'm sure, none of you did when meeting me. Today, I catch myself wondering why I even worried in the first place. You all have welcomed me in your own ways and made me feel right at home. It is not always easy to do that with just anyone, but you have all taken the time to get to know me. And now I know that if I ever needed anything, I can call one of you.

Thank you for letting me date him.

I am most thankful for this. Thank you for sharing him with me and giving me a chance to show you all how important he is to me. I never thought that I would luck out and meet someone as special, kind, and wonderful as he is, but I did.

You have supported our relationship, given me a chance to love him, and welcomed me to new adventures in love and family. I have the upmost gratitude for each of you. You are the most wonderful, welcoming, and loving family. I am overjoyed to be able to experience just a glimpse of this life with him and with all of you.

5 Things You Understand if You Are The Baby of the Group

That's okay, have fun without me

If you are one of the youngest members of your friend group, then you know just how it feels when everyone starts turning 21. Here are 5 things that only the babies of the friend group understand.

1. Always the DD

Once your friends start turning 21 and decide to go out, guess who gets to pick them up? That's right. You. The one that still isn't 21.

2. The mom

You may be the youngest, but when your friends come back from a good night out, you are the most responsible and mature one of the group. You are the one that has to take care of them.

3. Being left out of things

Well, if you aren't 21, you can't go to that cool bar that everyone else is talking about or on that wine tour.

4. Home alone on the weekend

While everyone else gets to go out and have fun on the weekend, you get to sit at home in your pajamas, watching TV. Sure this isn't a terrible thing, but when you are getting snapchats, and seeing your friends post about the fun they are having, you feel left out.

5. By the time you turn 21, your friends are over the hype.

You are finally 21 and you invite all of your friends. You are so excited, and they are excited for you, but after that night, you wanna go out and have fun, but your friends don't wanna go out as much because the hype of them turning 21 has faded.
