When they ask you, " can I crash here for a few nights. Do they really mean it or they just leaching off what they know they can bite.
They bite you for money, dollar Bill's rule their hearts. But when you ask them for something, it's to hard for them to swallow.
Family, they suck you dry and leave you to die. You bend over backwards for them, time after time.
You don't want to hurt them, but others can see your hurting. How to manage your cares, vs, what really should be the focus.
You let them stay, to help them get on their feet. They dont even clean up after they eat. Crumbs here; a few there.
Soon, you will have ants or even worse cobwebs.
You have went out your way to show hospitality and showed them around town a few times or two. You didn't ask them to pay rent, utilities, mortgage or even buy food.
Time and time again, they show no respect. It's not that you need it, it would be great to know they have fingers to make texts. They ask for things when it's convenient for themselves. But the rules you gave them in the beginning was left sitting on the doorstep.
When family comes in, marriages and bonds can do two things. Break or become stronger. But who is it really up to at that point.
Is being friends with family and not letting them see, how awful they have changed your life in just a few short weeks.
If you understand where I've been, you will know where I'm going.
I've had my share of crashes and a lot of screaming matches.
One family is insulting one is ungrateful, both are needy and both seem to care less.
Family is blood, but will they all do what's right? They want to drain you dry and they don't even consider how thirsty you might be. All the time they sleep in your home, wishing they were you and me.
Family or Foe, you must decide. They come in all packages, brothers, fathers, sisters, or wives. Husbands and daughters, cousins too. Don't forget the in- laws. They can be the worse just ask a few.
All I am trying to say is Treat others as you want to be treated. Being ignored sends a Big message and take Note, they Meant it!
