The family can be the most supportive but also most poisonous connection a person can have. It is always a very polarized relationship. People want to distance themselves from their relatives and want to be closely connected to them at the same time. The family is the most judgmental construct and can be very restrictive.
A lot of people move to other cities to have a new start, being away from their family because their connection is very emotional and complex. They see this as a possibility to be free, open to new opportunities, and separated from their past. They keep in contact with their family on a minimal level.
A lot of parents might not know much about their children, their work, and their social life when they are grown up. The adult children don´t share much about their lives and keep being physically and emotionally distanced from their families.
In most countries, it is very common to not be very close with the family.
But having a good and healthy connection with the most loved ones has a huge potential for every entrepreneur. Having a real, honest and open relationship without any conflicts and disputes is a big benefit for every human because it strengthens the mind, body, and soul.
They can give you safety
A family is a strong and very emotional system in which a child grows up. As children, we always feel very safe when the father or mother is close. Growing up the importance of the feeling to be safe is getting low. In emergencies or challenging situations, this feeling of safety strengthens our minds. Having a good and healthy connection to the family helps to feel safe and to have a backbone that will always be there.
