Me and my sis, last year :):
I've just spent a long, eventful night with my family, all together, for the first time in quite a while. The bickering, miscommunication, arguments, and banter was difficult for me. All of those feelings I've previously described of displacement, and the people and places I miss elsewhere make it difficult for me to engage with those I love so much. But, I do love them, regardless of anything. They are such an integral part of who I am, and I hope in some way I can make their lives easier in the future.
Family is very important. I love my mum, dad, and sister. Just wanted to say so, cause sometimes it is a struggle to express it to them personally.
