Are you close to your family members? I get along best with my mom. She is like a best friend to me now that I am grown. I don't talk to my dad as much, and am not as close to him as I am to my mom, but of course, I do love him. I don't have any siblings, so I guess my mom would be the family member that I am closest to.

I'm closet to my brother. I can tell him anything and he just listens. I'm very close to my mom, but, there are things I don't want to share with her, for fear she'll just start worrying about nothing. I'm not really close with my dad. We get a long, for the most part, but, our conversations are usually about that days events, tv shows, or people. Nothing really deep.

I know what you mean about not sharing certain things with your mom. As close as I am to mine, I don't share everything with her. There are some things that I don't think she would be proud of me for if she knew. Thank you for sharing.

I know she wouldn't be proud of some things I've done. If she knew it would hurt her which would hurt me. Just knowing she would be disappointed with me, hurts me - but not as much as telling her would. If that makes sense, lol

I'm not close to anybody, and that's just the way I like it. I used to talk to my mum over the phone, but that has stopped too because of some family intrigue. My family lives in Germany, I in Mexico, and for many years we just got on fine - perfect, actually, because we never saw each other. I went back for a visit 3 years ago, and things have been going steadily downhill ever since....

Aside from my dad whom I am very close to, I get along with my sister the best. We have a 12 year gap and it used to be a problem when I was younger. When I reached my "teen" years though, we started becoming close. All the more when she had her daughter. We now have a great understanding of each others wants and "unwants" in life.

My kids...all three of them. We are a very tight knit group..I am lucky though as I get along with my siblings too and my nephews and nieces.....we take great pains to get together as often as possible!
