Familia este cea mai de seama scoală in formarea caracterului (Samuel Smile)

Eu sunt total de acord cu aceasta afirmaţie, si cred ca familia, este in primul rind, o scoală in
care înveţi sa fii om. Numai in familie poţi sa înveţi sa iubeşti cu adevărat. Dragostea este
unul din componentele principale ale caracterului. Acest adevăr a fost confirmat de Domnul
nostru Isus Hristos, pentru ca El a spus ca cea mai mare dintre porunci, este sa-ţi iubeşti
aproapele ca pe tine însuţi, si o astfel de dragoste se învaţă numai in familie. Deasemenea,
numai in familie poţi sa înveţi sa ai răbdare in situaţii critice si sa ai curaj sa înfrunţi
nedreptatea.

Familia te mai invata sa suferi si sa te bucuri impreuna cu altii, fiindca intr-o familie
adevarata, daca cineva are necazuri, aceste necazuri devin ale tuturora, ele se impart in masuri
corespunzatoare tuturor membrilor familiei si astfel treci prin incercari cu mult mai usor
fiindca stii ca ai pe cineva acasa care te va sustine si te va ajuta intotdeauna. Stii, ca chiar daca
incerci si nu capeti nici un rezultat, vei fi oricum laudat acasa, in familie, acolo unde eforturile
tale sunt cunoscute si apreciate. Stii ca ai multe istorii vesele si hazlii, sa-ti amintesti o viata-
ntreaga. Mai sti ca exista un singur loc in tot universul, unde esti acceptat fara conditii, oricind
si oricum ai fi tu. Stii ca in acel loc, acolo, esti aparat de toate relele acestei lumi. Acest loc
intotdeauna va fi familia.

Familia contribuie la formarea caracterului, inca deaceea ca acolo nimeni nu se va rusina sa-ti
faca o observatie sau sa te mustre, astfel, sjutindu-ti la formarea caracterului au.

Dar, deseori copiii si chiar oamenii maturi, nu înţeleg importanta unei familii sănătoase si nu
o preţuiesc. Ei nu înţeleg ca numai dintr-o familie sanatoasa va creste o alta familie sanatoasa,
pentru ca copiii vor urma exemplul parintilor, si astfel ca creste o societate sanatoasa. Dar din
cauza unei familii stricate, societatea degradeaza si influenteaza asupra destinului altor
oameni, care ar fi putut sa traiasca o viata mai buna

Family brings out the best and worst in each of us. As we yield to and serve others we learn to
love them and ourselves in the process. Many of us could never approach this form of
selflessness in any other way. There is something about a mother or a father, a son or a
daughter. There is a connection there that binds us and asks more of us then we are normally
willing to give. When we are true to ourselves and follow our feelings and share openly and
honestly with our loved ones we remember why family is important. And we are well
rewarded for our sacrifice as it enables us to better appreciate who we are. On the other hand,
when we yield to our selfishness and take our family members for granted or treat them
poorly we lose our sense of self-worth and begin to despise those whom we once loved.

In our day-to-day interactions with our family we find out by our words and actions what kind
of a person we are and what's most important to us. The character Levin in Anna Karenina put
his family first and found himself through faith in God focused by his suffering. In the story
he explained, "my life now, my whole life, independent of anything that can happen to me ...
every minute of it is no longer meaningless as it was before but has a positive meaning of
goodness with which I have the power to invest it." This "positive meaning of goodness" that
Leo Tolstoy began to unravel in Levin's life with the birth of his son can be acquired by each
of us as we strengthen our own family relationships.

Our families hold the keys to understanding and appreciating ourselves. Who can relate better
to us then our own brother or sister that shared so many experiences with us? Who can love us
more selflessly then our own mother or father who sacrificed daily for so many years to raise
us? The better we understand our parents and siblings the better we understand ourselves.
This understanding is most completely achieved as we look to our family's heritage with the
help of our oldest living relatives. By discovering the customs, practices and traditions of our
ancestors we uncover truths about our parents and ourselves. We find out how our
grandparents treated our parents and so on from generation to generation. We discover the
ambitions and fears of our forefathers along with their failures and triumphs. In the process of
learning our family history we uncover our past, understand our present and shape our future.

Family is important because we are important and we need a group of loyal supporters. It
matters what we think and feel and nobody cares more about us than the members of our
families - at least, that's how it should be and it starts with us. The better we are to our
spouses, children, parents or siblings etc. the more they will want to be better to us. When we
can count on each other and lean on each other then family works. If we waltz in on family
when it's good for us and run out when it's bad for us then we're not doing our part and will
not find fulfillment there or elsewhere. Family is not only for our pleasure or entertainment
but for all facets of life: for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in
health, till death do we part - we need a family and that family needs us. When we support our
families we find ourselves supported.

A person who is called successful in life is a person who has a happy family. Family is
important to everyone in the world.. Each person has a different and unique family in their
heart. The strong role which family plays, family's communication, and its support are the
three main reasons that make family so important.
Many people believe that their successes and talents cause them to be lucky. Personally, I
believe having a happy family with both a mother and a father is my luck. l
