Do you value your family or just take them for granted? Are you willing to sacrifice something just for the sake of your family? How far can you go for that love of yours toward your family?

First of all, your topic is very nice. For me, my family is very important. Without them, my life is incomplete. I am so happy that I have my own family who is loving me, taking care for me, doing anything for me, and cherished me as their own son. I am lucky to have them in my life. I am so thankful that they are always there for me whatever problem that I faced. To your questions, nope, I do not want to take them for granted because it is unethical to do so. Yes, I am willing to sacrifice for my family because I owe my life to them. I would do anything for my family, and I will love them more than the love that they have given to me. I will make them happy and proud and show to them that they are lucky to have me as their son and that they deserved to have me. I will never do anything that against to them. I am just hoping the best for my family and, of course, that would not be possible without the guidance of the Lord. I feel sympathy for those people who were abandoned by their own parents. I hope that they would be able to find their own parents who will give them true happiness and love. Have a nice day ahead of you!

i have long proven my love for my family. when i was young, i was willing at all times to go at length in order to be able to serve and be of help to my parents and siblings. i even tried to get a part time job when i was doing my college years in order that i will not fully rely upon my parents to support me and my brothers and sisters as regards our financial needs. now that i have a family of my own, i have sacrificed so much to see this family through. i may be the woman of the house yet, i am financially independent of my husband, i do all the housechores to my utmost, sacrificed everything just to see my kids through thick and thin. now, my first two kids are already capable to be standing on their own. my youngest son though is very still under my care having been inflicted with an illness from childhood which we are still battling against until now. i have given up my job, my career and all financial gains just to see this son through. i am happy though that my efforts are all well rewarded...my son is recuperating well.

Offcourse i value my family the most and never do such things that will hurt my family members and bring bad name to the so far earned reputation of my family name.I respect the elders in my family and indeed my parents and brothers have given me complete freedom to choose whatever i want say its my career , life partner..hence i know my limitations and act accordingly. I support my family financially..My elder brother is married and my sister in law is little unadjusted with other members but still for the sake of my brother i adjust her and offcourse my other family members too..For me, family people are more important and i will adjust myself for them.

That is a nice topic,family values is very important for me,for my parents i can give up anything.I think it is the effect of our society's traditional education.It teach that that parents and children are whole and can't separate.Even the children have married,or succeed in career.It is our duty to support and treat parents well.sons and daughters have already become adult pay for the merchandises that parents want is also naturally.

Hello katkat, I come from a close-knit family. I love my family very much and willing to do anything for the sake of my own family. I think I live for them and there is no meaning of life for me if it is not because of them. I just want them to be happy and hope that we are alway united as a family.
