Everyone on here knows at least one scumbag. Most of these scumbags have family. Sometimes the whole family are scumbags. So, is family everything? What if everyone in your family is a scumbag but you? Nothing is 'everything'.
Could have given us a bit more to go on, to further this "discussion".

If you dont have any family - then family can't be everything!
I will give my 2 cents worth and say, no not in my experience. My eldest sister I only ever met once as she was adopted at birth, my middle sister disowned me a few years ago and haven't seen or heard from her since (she has mental health issues). And my dad I disowned 2 years ago as he's a c**t and a heavy alcoholic.
One of my uncles killed himself before I was born, my other uncle I last saw at his dads funeral nearly 4 years ago, and both my granddads are dead.
It is just my mum in my life, and even now I don't see her much as I moved away. I'm happy as I am with my partner, living my life with him.
It depends on the family. If you have a good family then they will be everything. However if you have a bad family then they will not be. I have little contact with my family other than my parents and an aunt. None on my Mother's side. I doubt that there will be any contact on my Father's side once my parents have passed. So I would say in my case no they are not everything. However if things were different then there is a good chance that they would be.
