Funny but I kind of get where Pete is coming from here.

I can totally see why people miss family, especially sons and daughters, mums and dads but I can also understand Petes views on being independent.

Even close family can let you down. Iv'e been very let down by family who I thought cared about us, but in truth they only ever really cared about themselves, so we've built a barrier round ourselves now.

It can make you feel differently when you've been hurt by people.
