Some people are lucky enough to find support and guidance in their family, for others, unfortunately, the family becomes the worst enemy. We hope you live in a family where serenity reigns, but we know that this is not always the case.

Some people are lucky enough to find support and guidance in their own family, for others, unfortunately, the family becomes the worst enemy. We hope you live in a family where serenity reigns, but we know that this is not always the case.





It may happen that you do not get along with one of the family members but also that the whole family creates a real front against a particular person. Or in the same family two camps are formed that cannot find peace between them.

Living in such a situation is very difficult and feels like a real penance. It can happen that when a family member shows up capable, independent and determined the others do everything to hinder him, to block him and not to leave him free to go his own way.

If this is your case, especially if you are young, make sure you get yours as soon as possible independence even beyond the will of the family members who are putting a spoke in the wheel.

Parents who hinder their children's independence may not have had it themselves or are unable to imagine their own life without their children close at hand. In these cases, the situation can become overwhelming and distressing.

To escape from an oppressive family, children must have the courage to take the last step necessary to take flight. It is also possible that, once a certain distance has been established between parents and children, the parents recognize the abilities of the latter. They will calm down and the children will finally be able to live their life in peace.

Sometimes leaving your family and facing the future alone is the only way out. At this point it is necessary to build greater self-confidence and plan life in complete freedom following one's wishes.


Those who move away from a toxic family must use their own common sense, his own judgment and intuition to make the best choices for himself. He will no longer have to depend on others and will have to take full responsibility for his actions.


Living in a difficult family can have the positive side of pushing you towards freedom and independence with greater courage to find your place in the world. Involuntarily the toxic family becomes a help to recognize one's true life path and to be able to choose it only with one's own head and heart.

Involuntarily a difficult family can help you succeed give real meaning to your life and to develop your skills. So even those who are currently living in such a situation will sooner or later find their own reward.

At some point you may find yourself thanking your difficult family for giving you the opportunity to find out who you really are with a thousand difficulties. If, on the other hand, you live in a happy family, consider yourself very lucky, perhaps you are already born in the right place and it will be easier for you to live peacefully in the future.
