This is a question Black Sheep

Every family has their black sheep, deserved or not. We're still not talking to an uncle who "borrowed" the capital from the family firm, causing it to collapse and leaving my dad out of work for 4 years in his mid 40s. Who aren't you talking to?

The white sheep...
My communist father suffered from chronic depression (not meaning to belittle depression, but he did use it to excuse his shoplifting and abusive habits) and he also professed his great admiration of Hitler and yes, I do realize that contradicts the communist bit! - he also disowned me for several years because I had a "darkie" for a best mate, my hardcore roman catholic mother was an alcoholic (although she successfully went on the wagon a few years back) and had a long term affair with a workmate of mine, I have three sisters – two are gay (...not that there's anything wrong with that...) and both are very much into ecstasy and marijuana (one of them seems to have never recovered from a bad LSD trip) and the third one’s just divorced so I’ll have to wait and see about her, my adopted brother served jail time for robbing an elderly employer, an uncle abandoned his family years ago and last I heard he was running a “bar” in Thailand and my grandparents had their first kid when they were 14 - back in 1919 when this was a mega taboo. (That’s a just a small sample for you!)

Me? I’m the white sheep of the family. Married, well adjusted and loving family of my own, never been in trouble with the law, always been gainfully employed, never inhaled, etc, etc…

I’m not sure where I went wrong, but I promise to seek counseling.
