Family Members (Prompt 2)

Leave a comment


My family is the reason I am who I am. I owe everything to them. Along with this, I am way closer to my family members than most of my friends. There is only one person in this world who knows me almost as much as my family does about me and he will be in my life for the rest of my years on the earth. I grew up in a significantly big family , and so, my first friends were my cousins, nieces, and nephew.

In particular, my niece has been my best friend since I was an infant. Of course, I do not share all of my deepest darkest secrets with my niece but she will know everything and more than anyone else in my family, even more than my mom. There have been times where my niece has not loved everything that I have told her, but she has always been supportive and respectful of my decisions.

The next person in my family would be my mother, she would be the second person one the knowledge scale. She is my go to girl in this world. I was very blessed to have a mother who not only put up with but also wants to hear all of my ridiculous drama on a day to day basis. We are very honest with each other, our conversations are heavily filled  with what is the latest in our lives.

However, I am not as open with the rest of my family. While I am a fairly open book, I most definitely do not disclose my sexual experiences or intimate experiences with my brothers, my grandparents, or even my dad. This is just something that is not talked about. However, that is not to say that we all don’t talk about our love life, because we do. They are most definitely interested in the latest boyfriends, just not the latest actions with these boyfriends.
