FAMILY

When people greet you, what do they ask?
Usually- ‘How are you?’ followed by ‘How is the family’. It’s because people realize that after your well-being, your family is probably the next most important thing to you.
No matter how we think about it, our families are very important and I’m sure in these times, when we all have to be at home, with either immediate or extended family, we have come to recognize the beauty and importance of family life even more.

The family was designed by God to the first set of friends an individual would have. Before you get familiar with outsiders, you are already familiar with members of your family.

Despite this, as we go on in life, we sometimes have friends that almost become as important to us as family. These people show up in our lives, understand us and just seem to be a part of every aspect of our lives. Whether we agree or not, they actually become family. With these people, family suddenly transcends blood relationships and ties.

Take a minute and reflect on these; do you have friends who have become family to you? Do you have friends who seem to know virtually everything about you and understand you in ways you cannot explain? Those who are not related through blood ties but have been there at important moments in your life and it really isn’t about how long you have known them but about the quality of the “knowing” That right there is family!

Redefining what family means has a lot to do with our generation. This is because, more often than not, many of us leave our homes, to universities and actually never return, not because we die or fall off the surface of the earth, but because we are out, chasing our dreams and aspirations. In actual fact, sometimes it becomes very difficult to keep up with our immediate family members and when we do, it is usually not as intimate as we would want it to be. This is why we should make it a point of duty to find ‘family’ wherever we go. There are people to meet and build meaningful friendships with at every stage of our lives if only we can be open to it. There are life-changing connections we can build everywhere we find ourselves, there are strangers that could suddenly mean the world to us, and there are friends that would stick even closer than our biological siblings.

Do not strive to find such relationships alone, try to be that person to others. Be that person who is always ready to lend a listening ear even when you have your own battles, be that friend that intercedes for others in prayers, be that friend that never stops giving, no matter how little. When you are that person to others, you most definitely wouldn’t be in search of people who would be the same to you. You don’t just become a part of their life, you become their family and they become yours.

So when next you are asked about your family, be sure to think wider than your blood relations because indeed, family transcends blood relations.

    В заключение, таким образом, можно сказать, что ИСС играют значительную роль в опыте и поведении человека. Также очевидно, что эти состояния могут служить как адаптивным, так и неадаптивным выходом для выражения многочисленных страстей человека, его потребностей и желаний. Более того, вряд ли следует сомневаться, что мы едва начали понимать аспекты и функций ИСС. В качестве заключения мне хотелось бы процитировать очень подходящее замечание У.

    52 % художников приписали психоделикам изменение своего креативного подхода. Часто указывалось, что психоделический опыт устранял поверхностность из работ художников и придавал им — как личностям и как творцам — большую глубину. Некоторые относились к своему первому психоделическому опыту как к «пик-переживанию», поворотному пункту в жизни. «После нескольких сессий с пейотом и ДМТ активизировался мой скрытый интерес к музыке», — сказал музыкант, другой заявил, что благодаря своему опыту с псилоцибином он впервые в жизни получил наслаждение от живописи. https://images.google.com.fj/url?sa=j&source=web&rct=j&url=http://batmanapollo.ru
