How you can improve your family relationship

  • Be interested in each family member: To look to improve your relationship with your family is to show genuine interest in the life of each person. It might surprise you how much just showing interest can mean to people.
  • Allow healing to take place: Healing from past hurts allows you and your family members to move past and into the future. So, when you're hurt, address what needs to be addressed without reservations so everyone can move on.
  • Allow space for differences: You may be a family bound by blood, but you still have to understand that we are all built to function differently. There's no point being against a family member who's different in some way. Instead, you should celebrate your differences as long as it doesn't harm anyone.
  • Give each other space to breathe: Even family members need space from each other to do their thing. Even if you all live in the same space, you can still give a family member the space they need to breathe.

Love isn't always easy, family members or otherwise. As long as people are concerned there will always be problems and misunderstandings. However, you must find a balance where you try your best without sacrificing your peace of mind.
