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.

Whenever you hear about roommate stories, they're almost never good, and they usually scare you into never wanting a roommate. "Did you hear her roommate steals her clothes?" "Her roommate doesn't shower!" "Wow, her roommate doesn't talk at all, and doesn't do laundry." From what I hear, there are more bad stories than good. That is why I consider myself lucky, because my roommate is nothing like one of those bad stories. When life hands you a good roommate after talking to about 40 girls through Facebook, a few things happen.

1. You always have someone to talk to.

2. You know each other's schedules, and whenever you both have a break is an exciting time.

3. You'll never have to dance alone.


4. You always have someone to do something with, even if it's just walking down the hall.

5. You both look out for each other, because this is your first time without your parents.

6. You always have a shoulder to lean on when things get tough.

7. Borrowing each other's things is a daily thing.

8. You TRY to help with each other's homework and assignments.

9. They're encouraging when it comes to boys. (Unless they're a f*ckboy.)

10. They're your biggest support system and your personal cheerleader.

11. They never forget to wish you luck on a big exam.

12. They accept how gross you are in the morning and not so pleasant sometimes.

13. You both know each other's favorite and least favorite things.

14. Leaving each other notes saying goodbye before class if you don't see them is normal.

15. Saying goodbye for breaks is upsetting.

16. Not seeing them all day is upsetting.

17. You have more pictures together than any of your other friends.

18. You found a best friend for life.
