Are you the rock of your family?

June 25, 2007 9:26pm CST
Well I would assume each member plays the role of the rock. (keeping things focused etc) Are you the backbone of your family? What would I do without my mother, huh? I honestly don't know the answer to that but I take after her is aspect I'm now the one who has to keep things ticking. (as my mums ill) my father works and it's like grandpa simpson lol (my brother) won't mention. I didn't realize how much actually needs doing when you play the "supportive", "caring", "sort" role. Are you or do you help when you can? ~Joey

I am most assuedly the "backbone" of the family of all siblings and others left. I am my fathers caregiver. Anyone has a problem they always call brother Bob in Minnesota. Sometimes it sucks big time. But the rewards outweight the bad ends easily. I have done a lot for all my brothers and my sister as well. Not to mention some Aunts and Uncles and cousins also. I love being the spine of my family at all costs. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Lucky you, Joey. I don't have my parents with me for a long time. I know things will be so much easier if my mother didn't left me so early. You know how it is to raise a kid. I need to grow up fast and stop relying on anyone. I don't like it but I need to be the rock and backbone of my family. No time to go soft. Sometimes, I wish for someone to take over so I can take my rest. I'm tired, Joey.

Hmm....I might be the one they want to throw rocks at. I honestly don't know where I stand in the family.

I am not sure if I am the rock of the family as I am neither sturdy nor unbreakable. lol. I only know I became the pillar automatically after my dad was diagnosed with cancer. Perhaps I take after my mum who provides the strength and will to persevere on to provide for my sibling and I, despite hardship. So automatically, being the eldest in the family, I sort of provide support for my younger siblings. And same till today.

My mum is our rock in the family, we are only a small family, just the three of us and she is the pillar she is the strength and we all draw of her, when she's up we're up, and when she's down we try and pull her back up again, it's like the three musketeers and we are very close.

I do help my family out whenever I can with what I have. I feel like it is a must if you have the means to have somehow.
