the black sheep in your family?
you have a black sheep in the family?
would say we don't have a black sheep in my family, however, I have
heard my sister Sue call herself the black sheep of the family. I
don't know why she does that because no one else thinks of her as a
there are times when Sue is the brunt of the family jokes but there
are other times when it might me Sandra or my who is the brunt of the
family jokes so it is not just Sue it can be anyone in a family
depending on the circumstances.
feel that Sue has a problem with self esteem and self image in that
hers is in the toilet and that is a worry to all those who love her.
family is largish and close knit and we have a habit of bagging on
each other at times, that doesn't make someone the black sheep it is
all done with love and we all can give as good as we get.
Sue was young she moved to Lemon Tree Passage with Rex the father of
her children and the man she married and because she lived close to
and hour away we didn't see her very often and she would often not be
able to attend family functions due to the distance or not having
money for petrol.
Sometimes I feel she felt like she was being
excluded from family events but that wasn't the case sometimes
something would happen on the spur of the moment and it was not like
she could just drop everything and turn up at mum & dad's place
in 10 minutes, as I said she lived a long way off and she had 3 then
she left Rex for a while she still lived in that area but then she
returned to live in Newie being only 10 minutes or so drive away from
mum and dad and there was a time when her and Kelli lived with mum
and dad for a bit. Since returning to the area she has been included
a lot more but still there have been times when she has felt everyone
was against her.
thing was to get upset and storm off in a huff and if no one went
after her she would think, “ I knew they didn't want me there”
well I felt that was what she was thinking and not that she had over
reacted to something or that no one was able to go off after her because on a couple of times we didn't even know she had left as she
didn't tell anyone she was leaving.
know I have never thought of myself as the black sheep of the family,
I don't think my sisters Sandra & Jeannie have either but I could
be wrong, Jeannie might have when she was younger and with Peter and
Peter didn't like the family much so she didn't see us as often as
she would had liked. Sandra had a rough few years as a teenager and
she might have thought she was the black sheep during those years.
am pretty sure Dave has never thought of himself as the black sheep,
since he is Dave and he is mums favourite and is more likely to think
the family revolves around him...................lol
have three daughters and I hope none of them think of themselves as a
black sheep because they are all wonder and special in their own way.
also have a heap of wonderful nieces and nephews none of which are
consider a black sheep, granted I am not real close to all of them
but then they are no longer children they are adults with their own
lives and I often don't get to see them very often but that doesn't
make them any less important in my life and none could be called a
I have to say if one is considered the black sheep of one's family is
that a bad thing. I think not, it means you are different, you are
your own person and it could mean you are part of family that doesn't
like it when someone has their own mind and own thoughts and opinions
on stuff. There are families in my opinion that don't like it when
someone goes off and does things differently, or there may be some
families who don't like someone's sexual preference but that is there
problem not the individual who is a little different, different is
not a bad thing and being different shouldn't make someone the black
sheep of a family.
