In my 30s is definitely when I fell out of love with the idea of a family. It's a ruse. We can survive alone. Sometimes. Most times. The few times we think we can't is just the universe tricking us into connecting again. The world needs human connection to keep running smoothly or something. Jaded people? People. Everyone is jaded. Just say "people" and it means "jaded". This isn't meant to be a Debbie Downer statement. It's optimism is what it is. We can't choose our family, it's true, and people can disappoint us at any random point in time.
