It’s no secret that I am a very outspoken liberal. What you may not know is the majority of my family members are outspoken Republicans.
Especially my brother. He is an avid hunter, Republican, and pro-life. He wears camouflage and I wear leopard print. We couldn’t be more different. I went hunting with him once on a brother/sister bonding trip and let’s just say the ducks got a break that day.
I used to not talk about my political beliefs because I was afraid my family members wouldn’t love me anymore. Well, I couldn’t be more wrong. Now everyone in my family knows who I voted for and they couldn’t care less because they love me. The only difference is now we have more things to tease each other about.
This is why I love family. You can disagree with your relatives about everything except for the fact that you love each other. I feel so supported knowing that I have a family who loves me even though they think I am bat shit crazy. Many aren’t this lucky, and no longer speak to their families because of their beliefs. I am so glad this isn’t the case for me because if there is ever a food shortage I know I can always count on my brother to go kill a deer for me!
