My question: why don't I love my family?
This might be a weird question, but it's been haunting me for some time now... With family I mean both close family like my parents and more distant relatives.
To be clear, I do appreciate all they've done for me! And there has not been any abuse or what so ever in my family... Everything is pretty much normal, but I don't seem to feel any affection towards anyone of my family. I am not very sad if one of them dies, I don't want to talk to them, I don't like going to family get togethers,... Generally I'd say I don't really like them that much. I've also never felt like I miss my parents when I'm away from home for a long time, I can get homesick, but then I miss my house and friends, not my family...
Could there be a reason that I feel this way? Or is this all just normal and is everyone just pretending to love his/her family because that's just how it should be?
