I think moving through LIFE is a difficult journey. I have trouble balancing the needs of my immediate family with those of my extended family. I'm curious how others do it.
Do you just focus on your little family and ignore the backlash around you? Do you try to find a happy balance? Do you cave it to the desires of the larger group and explain to those closest to you why we make the sacrifice?
With young kids in the mix, I want to make sure I set a good example and do what is "right". Any tips from your family would be greatly appreciated!
