When should you give up on members of your family?

I have made years of effort with my father and step mother, always the one suggesting things to do, being in their company, etc.

The only affection i have received is in the form of money, which feels more of a bribe of guilt to keep me happy.

or mere attempts of affection, and promises of making more of an effort,

I bring up what has been promised, or suggested only to be told “of course, we will soon” and then nothing,

I’m 34 so i think personally i have let it slide for far too long, and just wanted clarity on what i already believe.

    Not everyone is naturally affectionate. It's just their nature. At 34 you should have grown past wanting to fix other adults to suit you.

    Everyone follows their own separate interests

    And they eventually leave you. Friends, parents,

    Siblings, wives, kids, fellow employees, teachers, politicians, preachers, doctors, everyone.

    So just follow your and say see you later. You

    Decide when later is or never is again eventually.

    But life is very short so make sure you hug them

    And tell them you love them before they pass

    Away. It's about keeping your conscience clean

    And without regrets or a bad feeling about yourself due to what you did or didn't do or should

    Have done or could have done better. Family

    Makes life very complicated emotionally.

    If you feel you have done what you can, and nothing seems better. It probaly time to move on.
