Why, in spite of the differences, it doesn’t have to be hard to get along with relatives
In a person’s extended family, you usually can find uncles, aunts, cousins or in-laws. But it is not always easy to get along with them: let’s say, one of your cousins’ just broke to you his idea about how to fry an egg but you know it is wrong and you have told him so but he keeps insisting to you that he is right and you actually have to take time out of your socializing (with your relatives) and argue with him that you really know better and that he is very wrong. Family environments like that tend to be more particular when your big extended family gathers somewhere during the holidays and the atmosphere seems to want to simply make people just always argue over the most insignificant of matters, such as marriage, food, work and friendships.
A family environment is so much healthier (and nicer) when you get along with your relatives, no matter what their tendency might be like. Naturally, a circumstance like that can only be so if you can claim that the people that you call your relatives are genuinely good people in the world and it is not only because they are people who are always good to you; any circumstance other than that, in my opinion, can’t really be deemed as the most typical kind in an extended family environment. At the end of the day, I think it really helps if you are an articulate person in quarrelsome family environments and also if you know how to talk about the important topics in life, like your nation’s culture and cooking, because then you can easily avoid aggressive behavior by correctly arguing your way out of a pointlessly bickering atmosphere.
