I know that for many people, if not most, family love is vital to personal growth. It helps to have a support system when you’re trying to achieve, and a person can often can do more when those who have known them longest and are deeply connected to them believe in them. Family love is often unconditional, and that in itself can be a huge help, to know that if you fail at trying to grow a particular way, there will still be those who love you.
I would encourage them not only to think about how their loving family members can support them in their growth efforts, but think about how they can support the family members they love. Often (but not always) our love and support comes back to us if we’re willing to give it away, and we can find a new source of strength in being able to love and support openly.
It’s like finding strength in vulnerability, because you’re doing something good even if it’s a somewhat vulnerable act, and no one can take away from you the fact that in the big picture, sharing love is what is right. If you can find the courage to openly do what is right, you can find new strength to grow with.

- Be true to yourself, know your value and worth and don’t settle for anything less. Besides family and friends, you are number 1 in your own life so make decisions for YOU. There will be many people who try to manipulate or use you, trust your instinct and gut feeling – it never lies.
