Self disclosure in my family is pretty minimal because I feel there’s a lot that my sisters and I can’t say in front of our parents. The self disclosure between my sisters and I is far beyond it is between my parents or I or any of us. Our parents though they are more modernized now they were more third world mentality oriented as I grew up. In our family it is believed that relationships are things you don’t trouble yourself with until you are done with school. This is the philosophy of parents they were never okay with my sisters and I ever dating so when we did it would have to be in secrecy. Although it does suck not being able to be open with our parents it did bring us together as siblings. My sisters and I are a close net group and we’re pretty much inseparable, they’re my best friends and my role models. Instead of confiding in my parents I’d confide in my sisters, they would always be there for me and comfort me. My parents were more there as supervisors than anything else, don’t get me wrong they were awesome parents and gave us all we ever wanted but they weren’t really there emotionally. Though there is little to no self disclosure I wouldn’t trade my family for anybody else’s mine is awesome and I love them.
