Well said Selco, thank you. When a bunch of different personailties are thrown together, even if they are family, without a shared goal and loyalty to the goal it’s hard to achieve anything. Thankfully my little family years ago, when so very poor, shared the goal of climbing out of our circumstances back to a better life. We all helped each other and worked together as a team. Wouldn’t have happened otherwise.
It’s also important to examine yourself well and know your own breaking point under stress. The mental, psychological point. (The physical is all too familiar!) Mine is constant contact with others – have to have my own space eventually/’alone’ time or I begin to unravel.
