Maybe a happy family is what you truely want. It is always on your mind because you want it so badly.

It's okay to wish things would be different, but all you can change is yourself. Be the happy person you want to be. Nurture the relationships that nurture you. Avoid those that do not.

The things people fall asleep and wake up to are just desires of theirs. I would guess that you do not currently feel you have a happy family and therefore you think about what it would be like to have one.

Maybe it's a reflection of what you want yourself. Back in high school, whenever I see one of my classmates with her happy family, I suddenly get teary-eyed. We all want a happy family. I want one too. We just have to be patient and maybe one day, we'll have a happy family of our own. :-)

Dreaming is what keeps us wanting more, fighting for more and achieving more. Waking up every day thinking how it would feel like to have a happy family is just a way of expressing a dream of wanting one and therefore working so that the future will be bright!

We all go through this at times, it totally normal I think it stems from the portrayal of families from hollywood movies, but hey I'm no expert

Everyone wants a happy family in dreams or in reality. Does not mean that you can't have one. But always remember that no family is a perfect 1. Family are many heads in one body and there will be many personalities and character in that 1 body.

It is normal to mourn over what you do not have. Many people want their loved ones to be happy it's only natural just know that things have a way of working out

Most people are prone to think or long for things they feel are absent in their lives. If you feel you are unhappy or dissatisfied with your household or family, maybe it's time to start thinking about what makes you feel this way and what you can do to make it better. Communication is key, as long as you are open to speaking out and addressing your feelings then it's likely things can turn out better for you and you can come to agreements and understandings between family members. If you find yourself in a serious situation, speak up and contact those who can help you.

It is completely normal to feel that way. This is something that I used to struggle with when I felt that my life was going to derail at one any moment. You might be feeling this because you felt the same way I felt, or about something else that goes far more deep into your past. Maybe your family? How you were brought up? Was there someone who made you feel bad all the time? Maybe you feel that you don't deserve to have a happy family, so you think about how it would be if you did. How come you feel this way? Is it because of something you regret?
