I’ve seen countless people around me feeling absolutely miserable because they feel a duty to their families, even when that family have become toxic in their treatment of my friends. Being family doesn’t grant you special privileges to be a horrible person to each other. Unfortunately, because of the “family” label, people feel like they can’t cut them off as they could toxic friends, and instead continue to be miserable with toxicity around them, thereby toxic family are worse than toxic friends.
