How would you get along with your sibling(s), parent(s), or any other person you’ve known for a long time — if you only met them for the first time today?
You mean knowing they are family? I think I’d get along beautifully.
I have some experience. For a long time I’ve been forcefully separated from my family in Croatia. I met my aunts, uncles and cousins for the first time when I was 28 and I traveled for the first time to the Country.
I found lovely people, very happy to meet me after so many years. There were from the beginning some complicity and confidence you can only find in family bonds. We instantly got along very well despite we were technically complete strangers to the point that we needed pictures to recognize each other at the airport.
We are a close family. No major problems among us.
What would happen if I met for the first time my sister today not knowing she’s family? I’m sure I would try to become her friend, because I admire her so much because of her attractive personality, her good humor, her smile, and her virtues, that I’m positive she would leave a great impression on me from second one.
