  • If it's your senile grandmother who really doesn't KNOW that she's doling out crap, then take it ALL. It it's someone who is compos mentis and KNOWS they're pulling your chain, you take ZERO.

  • NONE...lol. Seriously though, mine are criminals and drug dealers, so my situation is extreme and I've removed myself and my immedate family. BUT, what I have learned is my real family are my hub and kids and amaziing friends I surround myself with. My friends are who my children call Aunts and Uncles.

  • none. If I don't want it I straight up say so. I have enough crap of my own. If they are mad at me because of it, that's their deal and I won;t sleep over it :)

  • I don't take crap from anybody except my grandmother, who has earned the right to give people crap because she is 78 and raised 7 children, including me. lol Other people have to EARN the right to give me crap!

  • You're not obligated to take or give anything whether family member or not. They became your family against your will, but they only stay family by choice. I don't care if they're my family or not, if they do me a loved one wrong they're gone. If they are too much drama they're gone. You EARN the right to be my family, you aren't awarded it by being blood.
