Are you closer to friends or family?

I really don't know how to answer. I mean, I can depend more on my family, but I am not as open as I am with them about personal issues the way I am with my friends (except my sister).

  • Honestly, I am very close to my family. But I have got some really good friends that I am close with that I consider family. I am focused more on my friends right now because for the past 10 years my stbxh alienated me from them.

  • My family lives pretty far away and I am not close to hubby's family at all. So, I guess I would say friends, but really, if my parents were closer it would be family.

  • Im closer to my friends. I moved 1/2 way across the country to get away from my ultra controlling family. It's soo nice not having them pop in when they feel like it and never trying to tell me how to run my life.

  • I am closer to my friends who I talk to at least a couple of times a month. My family and I really don't talk, maybe every couple of months if that.

  • Our Friends.

  • Neither. I grew up bouncing from house to house so I learned to close myself off. My family, well thats a long story and another reason I learned to close myself off from people. The only person who knows me inside out is DH and he is the only person I know I can depend on.
