As Douglas Coupland so aptly says: all families really are psychotic. Not because of some misfiring brain neurons, but because every family is comprised of all kinds of people who are forced into each others’ presences because of blood and DNA. Could you imagine if you were forced to spend time with your entire high school English class? That’s how random a mix every family is. Why should we expect families to get along when it’s obvious that the fashionista and the science nerd just aren’t meant to see eye to eye? Some people just aren’t meant to get along. Don’t force it, don’t fight about it, just accept your differences and move on. In the long run, the family you make is the one that really matters.
