This is where we can differentiate between the BIOLOGICAL family and the LOGICAL family.
The biological family may have been dysfunctional and toxic, where a lot of relational trauma has occurred. Where, as a child, your needs have not been met, or there has been neglect and abuse. You have learnt that your needs are not valid, unimportant, and relational wounds have been created.
These children will often start to look outside the family unit for affirmation, tribe, acceptance etc. I know many people who were rejected by their biological family because of their sexuality and found healthy, nurturing relationships within the LGBTQ community. This is their LOGICAL family. These are the people who understand us, see us, validate our experiences and have our back.
They can literally save our lives.
