How to maintain familial relationships?
Relationships are hard, especially those with our family. It is easier for most to maintain healthy relationships with their friends so a good start is to think of your family members as friends and establish communication like you would with a friend. Go back to the beginning. Ask yourself: What do I like about this person to begin with? What qualities do they possess that I find valuable? What makes them amazing? Reassessing these reasons will help you focus on improving the familial communication rather than dreading it and will give you topic talk ideas while it will strengthen your already-existing, blood relationship foundation.
