Todos los Santos changes and the 2th becomes the day of the souls, Día de los Muertos. Today I had lunch with some of my family, the family that I still have from my biological father, and we all said goodbye and because we are sort of loud but not overly sentimental some things my aunt said surprised me a lot. And I'm happy because due the divorce and my biological father estrangement I always feel sort of alone on these occasions, even if I know it's not intentional, I'm always on my own when I'm with them. My mum has, obviously, another life now and my brother has distanced himself, so the family bonds I have when I'm with them are somewhat thinner... and that feels lonely. It's quite curious I can be social and talkative, but I have these spells were I just disconnect, and my mind goes elsewhere; I'm the quiet girl, the good girl, so, a lot of times I don't know if they even like me as I don't engage all that much. And today I felt appreciated and valued by my aunt, and understood. And that's a wonderful feeling.
Enjoy the change that comes from autumn, and enjoy your families, doesn't matter the form they have.
