These 20 Quotes Remind You Why Family Is So Damn Important

Love, Quotes

We know ... family drama drives us ALL a little crazy.

The holidays have arrived and ultimately, we know what this means — the whole family gets together and STRESSES you out like CRAZY. Especially with every news story that has provoked conversation this past year, it's hard for that one member of the family who's extremely opinionated to not tell you how they feel.

Whether it's because your immediate family cannot stop bickering, or the extended family from who knows where waltzes in and barely talks to you (but has no problem eating your food), one thing is for damn sure: The idea of family being all together in one room is super-DUPER stressful.

But we need to stop in our tracks and remember why we should stick with them in the first place. We need to remind ourselves how lucky we are to be cared for and catered to in the ways our families do for us.


Whether it's the family you made for yourself, or the ties you have by blood, the concept remains the same. A family knows you best, and as the holidays are supposed to remind us that it's all about the love we have for one another.

Without further ado, here are 20 "why family is important" quotes to help remind us why we love them (and would be NOWHERE without them).
