Undoubtedly, family plays important role in our life. Some people put it in the spotlight whereas others consider that there are more significant aspects.
In my opinion, family is crucial indeed. Firstly, your relatives are always ready to give you a hand in times of trouble, stand by you when it is needed. It is vital to have such a background to feel strong and not alone in a difficult or just unpleasant situation. Secondly, family grows you up and gives education. So it is necessary to be grateful for it and appreciate everything done for you. Moreover, family helps a person to socialize as a child see a role model in everyone. As for me, I gathered all the better treats that I saw in my family members in my childhood.
However, there are people who do not put family in the first place.
They are sure such things as a good job, career opportunities, self-fulfillment are more important. Some people keep such beliefs strong throughout life, but there are those who change it as they grow older.
Nevertheless, I disagree with this point of view. The point is no matter at what stage of life you are family will always be for you, so all other aspects of life do not have as many advantages as family has.
To sum up, though the problem of family place in people's lives is rather controversial, I strongly believe that nothing can be compared with the position of family in our lives. Keeping in mind the importance of the family, we should not reject the significance of other things as well.
