Sometimes , peoples understand each other if they are not from same family, i mean that friends are more understanding as family are. Are you agree with this? I don t talk about about mother, father, wife or kids...i speak about uncles, aunts, sometimes they are more strangers as a good friend are. Are your friends more important as your family is?

Yes,friends can understand us better than family. I guess that's because friends' life experiences are more similar to ours. My uncles, aunts are not very close to me. We only have chances to meet each other once a few months.When we are together, we dont have much to talk about. I cant remember that I have ever share my feelings with them. But with friends, we have a lot of stuff to talk about,such as our study, our future,our parents... Therefore, in my case, friends are more important to me than my family.

Hi, Its really a very hard question to answer. Actually you can't ignore anyone just on a go. Perfect thing to do is check out what sounds good to you and others and decide accordingly just! Just! for that moment. Never igrone friends or family! Happy mylotting! Cheers :)

My family is important to me because they gave me life with the help of God, they always there to comfort me in every circumstances, if there's no family,who will teach you to make friends with other. friends are there if you are happy when you feel sad your friend says no to you. But your family is always there weather bad or good comes into your life

Hi icesmile If you ask me between my parents and my friends I would say I give priority to my parents as they are the core for me to be living here and if the question is between my relations and my friend, I think I am closer to my friends. I see my relations occasionally and I am most of the time with my friends. In my hard and good times I always feel my parents and my friends comfort. Thanusha

Nope,Meh..family! But it doesn't mean that if you ask some advice or your more open to your friends they are more important than your family..even me I'm not open to my mother or to our parents.Especially if you asking advice regarding love life or boys...you rather ask your friends.right! strict ang parents..lol

I think in life you need your family and friends equally for different reasons or purposes. But if I had to choose- it would be my family and in that case I have two very close girlfreinds that I consider family so I choose them with family. I don't think you can pick or say one is better- I think in life you need both. Happy mylotting!

both play different roles in ones life.parents and friends are very important in everyones life.so for me i can not choose one which is more important to me that is the reason i would go for both of them.parents and friends both are very important part of my life and i need to have both of them in my life i am a person who values relationship so family and friends very dear to me always and forever.

you right, but i am sure that you were in a situation when you need help...who was there for you? family and friends too?

I think...both. friends and family play a very important role in our life. Friends give you comfort in times of sad moments and they are your listeners. Most of the time, it's easy for us to open up our problems and secrets to friends rather than to our family. Family also is very important. They are your protector and guidance. They give you happiness too and love.

Before this i think my friends are the worth for me but after many things happen to me,i will change my mind.It hard to get true friend and friends will never same with our family.Family always beside us and help us when we need.That was happenned to me.My friends never want to help me but at last my family the first help me....

For me Family. [b] My Family members are more important for me as they will help me in my problems till they live.But friends are with us for only 2-5 years and they go away when they get a job. So,i prefer my family but i too will help my friends when they call me.[/b] Really saying both are important for us but family comes first
