4 Reasons To Keep Your Family Close In Your 20s
Your 20s are a highly volatile time, and it can be a kind of awkward phase when it comes to interacting with your family. You feel more like an adult (most of the time, anyway), but these people changed your diapers and probably still think of you as a toddler in bigger clothes.
It can be easy to feel like the best way to deal with them is to separate yourself and prove that you’re an adult. And what happens if you move to a new city or across the country? While figuring out the family stuff can be difficult, it’s important not to forget about where you came from. Here’s why it’s important to keep in touch at any age.
