I just want some openion from you all mylot friend's that do friend's play an important part in life or family members do, as whenever i am in trouble all my family family members have backed out and at that time i didn't haad any close friend, so i need your openion that are friend's more helpful than family member's.

I am very disconnected emotionally from my family, i dont feel apart of it. So i would say my freinds are more important to me as i tell them everything, and i tell my family nothing. I dad always asks why i feel i can't talk to him about myself and all i can say is its an instinct, then run off becuase i dont want to talk to him about me ^_^

I agree with your comments as i have also faced the same situation from my family members when there was a time when i need someone but everyone backed out as it was my bad time and now when i am in good position they all come to me, but now i don't like to keep any more relations with them.

I understand, after letting you down im not suprised you dont want to let them in. I supose if they genuinily wanted to be let in it is worth doing it slowly. I am trying very hard with my dad, he never did what your family did, but i would like to be closer to him. Now i will just tell him something random about anything that happend and how i felt. Nothing deep but im allowing more and more will do so if he continues to honor my trust.

For me, family is more important than friends. My family has been with me through thick and thin, they have made a lot of sacrifices for me and I wouldn't be in the position where I am today without their help & guidance. I would never trade my family for anything else.
