Are we supposed to move away from family and create our own? Can we ever create a new one or will it just be a re-creation? Sometimes it feels like we're playing house all our lives and continually healing our original family dynamic. One would like to think that we make all new friends and marry or date into new families - but in the end, it's the real family that is considered "immediate" - and not the peripheral one. Dark as this might sound, it's worth building from the original foundation in addition to the new or it might crumble.
