it depends on you. you said your relatives are good,so you choose them rather than friends. It's the same with me. My relatives are really good to me so I choose them in times of difficulty.. I still believe with the saying that goes blood is thicker than water. My best friend is actually my cousin.. But if you dont have strong ties with your relatives, then you may choose your friends.. You just have to be careful in choosing friends..

relatives and friends well i can't chose one... they are both loving and caring to me and i will say that you should value your relatives more but they are both very important and it be great if you have the right balance among them

If your family is so close together than you should consider your family first rather than friends. But there are still friends that do more than a real family members do. In my opinion friends are more better to stand by your side in difficult times.

I think it depends on your relationship with your family, I don't have a very good relationship with my family so I have sort of made my friends my family, so for me personally it's better to turn to my friends.

i would say on my side it will be my friends, they had come whenever i needed help. i would hear my family say i have no time to help. but my wife side they are good about helping when we needed it..
