Who are you closest to? - June 11th 2011, 04:53 AM

As the title suggests, who are you closest to in your family, and why?

For me it's my brother.
Him and I have dealt with the same things, and I've always taken to looking out for him.
Plus, he is adorable.

I'm closest to my sister.
I take her out for sno cones, shopping, etc. She's a great sister!

My dad I used to think I was close to my sister but I guess not. My dad and I have similar personalities and we think alike.

I'm closest to my mum, i tell her each and everything that's going on in my life, without hiding anything from her, and she gives me a patient hearing all the time, not all the typical parental stuff like lecturing. i really really love her and i am blessed to have her as my bestest friend, love you mama

I'm going to say my aunt, though we aren't as close as we used to be. Heh, when I was little I used to call her mom, even in public...she was a young teenager at the time. xD

I'm not 100% close with anyone in my immediate family, so I'd probably say my cousin. We talk about everything and anything, and she always listens and makes me laugh. ♥

For me it is my mu, I'm am a mummy's girl through and through. Always have and always will be. We have great conversations sometimes about silly random things I even have told her how to teach in the past...;-) other times serious things like how she is feeling and important matters like gay rights and gay communities in school and my feelings.

I am also getting close to my sister after 3 years of being not that close which is a great and exciting thing.....typical that we have gotton closer just as she is getting ready to go to uni in september ;-P

It was my uncle, but since he had a kid i've almost been forgotten about.
And it was my mum, but she's been acting so distant lately there's barely a relationship there.
I'd have to say my nan. She's always been there and I know we have a better connection than any of her grandchildren.

I'm not close to anyone technically... I don't share much information about deep personal stuff with my family.
But if I were to talk to someone in my family it would be one of my sisters. Most likely my younger sister because we're closer in age, I spend a lot more time with her, and I know that she won't tell my parents about what I told her.

I'm definitely a daddy's girl, but as I'm getting older, we're arguing more and more.
I love my youngest brother so so much - he's 9, and adorable, and I love making him happy.

So probably my younger brother is the person I'm closest to in the world.



But also, I have so many friends in my orchestra (including the two teachers!) who I would willingly die for, so I can't really choose one.

In my family I'd say I'm closest to my mum. I used to be like..best friends with my cousin, but she's seperated off from me since my mum and her fell out, but they're okay now, we're just not as close. Me and my mum talk about quite a bit. It's safe to say I see her as a friend as much as a mother.

My Mom for sure.

I tell her everything, she's the one who I first told about my SH, she tells me everything going on between she and my dad (marital problems) and we have a lot of fun together. We drove down the street singing "Pocketful of Sunshine" as loud as we could, and we have the same sense of humor so it's great (:

I'm closest to my mum. I don't feel that close to any of my family really, but she's the one I'm closest to.
Except my little sister, but because she's four it doesn't really count.

I'm really not much like anyone else in my family, and I avoid them when I can. But if I had to choose, I'd say my brother John. Same musical tastes, same talent of writing and love of travel.

My sister. A while back my mom kind of made us hate each other (saying to my sister i said bad things about her, telling me she said bad things about me kind of thing) but after we realized that, we've become pretty close. We talk a lot, and we do have a lot of similar problems, but shes a lot older (shes turning 21 in august) so she has a lot of experience

My dad has a... Strong personality that kind of gets hard to deal with after awhile. And plus, I feel like I can talk to my mom about anything.

No one, I am not open with any of them, and when I am they don't seem very interested in what I have to say. :/


Self pity will not rescue you.
Sometimes we have to save our own lives,
not because no one else cares, but because no one else can.

Life for you has been less than kind
So take a number, stand in line
We've all been sorry, we've all been hurt
But how we survive is what makes us who we are.

Dreamed up the maps, give me the charcoal and the paper
We invent paths they cannot see, and they're too scared to walk


Only after disaster can we be resurrected. It's only after you've lost everything that you are free to do anything.
