Q. What is the significant distance you have traveled in your life?

My family

Recently I am thinking of the distance with my family members very often. It is probably because some of my brothers and sisters have passed away and my life style is also changed. I lived alone before but now I moved my house in order to live with one of my sisters. When living away from other members of my family, I didn’t feel any difficulties about how to relate with my family. Now I realized that we also needed take a neutral attitude each other. All of my family–currently I have sisters, daughter and grandchildren–are truly important beings for me. From now on I would like to be thoughtful to them and keep such a good relationship/ distance with them.
