    Though it depends on how you look at it. The trees have more bark than the dog.

    My family is being torn apart, is there some way i can stop it?

    @Fuzsyfreedy28 My dear friend this is a difficult thing to face and I am sorry that you have to go through it. However, I am very encouraged by your desire to reconcile your parents and sister. This can be a very difficult thing to get through, but it is important to remember a few things. First, the relationship is not your's to fix. Bringing that difficulty upon yourself will only hurt you, and none of this is your fault, or something that you can fix. This in the end is a problem between your sister and your parents. And the end outcome of their dispute will ultimately reside between them. In the meantime, while they are figuring things out, it is best not to pass judgement on one or more parties. For the vast majority of issues such as these are misunderstandings. Most likely you sister embellished the details of her parents rule, DJ, being a young idealistic man confronted them, your parents, who were just parenting took this as evidence of rebellion. However, at this stage, the details of the issue are in the past. Thus it really doesn't matter. In all relationships the only thing that changes confrontation, hostility, and distrust is forgiveness. And not the kind that attaches stipulations. Forgiveness that goes beyond saying, hey you need to do this or that, but instead forgiveness that says it doesn't matter what you've done or where you are at, I want the best for you right now. This is where you come in. The only things you can do is facilitate conversation. Talk to your parents about forgiveness. Talk to your sister about forgiveness. Not necessarily between themselves, but even with you, because we all do things that require forgiveness, but your willingness to come before them and acknowledge your weakness, allows them to be weak as well. We spend so much time building up walls and often people say they have put up wall too high or too deep to get past. But in reality the invitation of asking for and giving forgiveness, is that you come out from behind your walls and meet the other person where they are at. And if you can draw out your parents' and sister's heart for forgiveness. Then they too can be reconciled to each other. This doesn't excuse lying, or cheating, or anything like that, however, it acknowledges it and says forgiveness and reconciliation are more important than getting justice, which I think we all want more anyway. Or at least I hope we do. But in the end Fuzsy, no matter what happens, we are here for you and for them. Do what you know to be right, show love, respect, and honor. No one can fault you for that. Love, Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones.

    First time relationship?!

    Science, though we already know where this story ends up going I want you to revisit your thoughts prior to embarking on another endeavor. Mainly so that if some such thing comes by again you are ready, and have a mindset for how to approach a relationship of any kind. You are a passionate, energetic, and driven young man, and I hope that carries over to your studies. Because at the end of the day, if you are at college and you are not worried about how well you are doing, then you probably shouldn't go. Which sounds harsh, but unless you are one of the lucky few who invent something or get involved with a really cool group of people. It will be your degree that ends up opening doors. Having a 6 figure job drop in your lap while in school is the exception, not the rule. So, now that I'm off my soap box I want to remind you how important you are, and how important just regular friends are. I want to remind you of the importance of being kind to people because they are valuable and need it, not because they are a potential partner. You mean enough that you shouldn't jump into a relation to quickly without getting to know the person, and possibly winding up hurt. And the other person needs the same. I'm not saying that you should desire a person you find attractive or who you admire, but that a relationship goes beyond that, into the day to day things of life. The person you spend that time with will undoubtedly influence you, and you will influence them. So try to be the best person you can. Not that you have to be perfect to get into a relationship, or none of us would qualify, but that you are looking out for your and their best interests. No matter the type of relationship: work, romantic, community, or otherwise. Anyway, you're a smart guy, I'm sure you know most of this already. But every question deserves an answer, even if its not what we expect. Love, Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones.

    Hailey - Tough dream...

    I'm with Sunnily on this one, I think we all have dreams where something isn't right or we are not quite ourselves. But you know who you are and who you want to be. So, it's up to you which dreams you make come true. The ones you don't decide, or the ones you set for yourself right now. Best of luck and much love ❤️

    The Long Road Ahead

    Friends it had been a long time since I've had words of encouragement for you. So I've returned with more. Words to uplift and help you get going. So, today, I want to talk about the long journey, the long road ahead. It's the path that takes you where you want to go, but often has detours you didn't plan in your route. Perhaps you are in one of these detours right now. So I'm going to tell you what I tell my wife when I get lost... Well take the way didn't expect. "We aren't going to wrong way, we're just going a different way." I say this because I think today some of us need a reminder that maybe this isn't the path you thought you would take, or maybe you've been this way many times and some how you got off track just today. But it doesn't matter. Maybe you too detour to the drug store, maybe you took a detour and left your family at the corner of Heartache and Pain. I'm here to tell you that it doesn't matter which turns you've made. It's about the turns you are making. If I know the destination I want is in the East, I probably don't want to keep heading West. If I know that I want to have a loving family, I know that I can't keep pushing them away. And I know what you're thinking, Joe I made a wrong turn and I'm about to run out of gas how am even supposed to make it back in the right direction. Well then friend you need to stop at a gas station. If you're feeling worn down, beat up, hurting, whatever it is. This is the place to refuel, recharge, and replenish. And maybe it's not here maybe you don't like Marathon, but Shell is more your thing. That's fine too, but we're just want to make sure you get where you're going. The road and life you have is a long one, there's no reason to spend it trying to push your car. Spend time with people who are going to give you the energy and the ability to get where you are going no matter how many wrong turns, detours, and missed exits you have. I'll see you out there on the road. Drive safe. Love, Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones
