I’m not ashamed of my family persay, but I do have keep my distance at times with them because they’re a bit much. I struggle with the idea that I may be considered not good enough by a man with a healthier family because of those things. I assume they also want women from equally strong & normal family units. But that’s what I want. I want to form connections with a healthy family. Am I being realistic?”
