20. What makes me happy

Hands-down, my family.

I grew up in a dysfunctional and disjointed family that never gave me a sense of belonging that others experience. As an adult I’ve been able to build good relationships with all my siblings and that makes me very happy.

But it’s the family  I created for myself that makes me happiest. Nothing gives me more joy than the regular casual get-togethers that we have. They are my reason for being.
