    It's the same in mine. No one shows emotions, I'm cool with it either way.

    Showing too much affection and emotion makes me feel weak and uncomfortable.:embar:

    Sometimes I'm too shy to show affection, I guess that's just me tho.

    we show sadness more easier then love and affection

    ther are lots of girls in our family so the tears and emotions come easily and hormonal outbursts. we are not good at showing love and affection though. we do taht instead by buying things for one another, doing little taks for the other person, helping the other person with something, but kisses and hugs. NOOO just not that type of family

    muslims show their love by looking after parents, listening to them. respecting them, making dua for them etc and not the kuffar way of saying lots of I love u and sticking them in an old persons home as soon as their 60!

    I don't agree with keeping things bottled up...in my parent's house, emotions weren't expressed much, or not as much as I think they should have been.

    In my own, I encourage it, because I believe it helps with closeness, trust and bonding. I want my family to be able to turn to each other, rather than to strangers. Plus it's sunnah, look at how the Prophet (saws) interacted with his family.

    Your kids will remember it as they get older and know they can express themselves fully.

    It's a lot more than just emotion in a vacuum,. Expressing and talking about feelings can help to discover things about ourselves, help solve problems etc.

    It's up to adults to initiate it.

    Asalamucalaykum my dear sister, hadamatter

    Its absolutely fine to tell your family you love them and I would encourage you to do so. When you give your a mother a kiss and hugg her,that id a moment to cherish. One day you will look back and say,I wish i did more of that.

    We are encouraged to let out any feelings or emotions we have, but for some reason I feel uncomfortable doing this with anyone, I just keep everything bottled inside me. I guess its because i feel like they wont understand or take me seriously, or they`ll blame it all on me being quiet and introverted :(

    We aren't an emotional bunch overall, but in some situations we all get a bit emotional. If I hear someone crying in the house I don't know what to do tbh and if I was to go talk to them it would make me uncomfortable.

    We are more practical in the sense that if someone needs help, we will be there for each other. Personally I prefer that, unless I ask for emotional support which I don't really. I prefer to have reliability than people telling me they love me all the time.

    My family, never hold hands, hug, kiss, tell each other they love each other etc etc

    My in laws do all of the above and more.

    I don't think neither way is normal/abnormal. I consider both families pretty functional in their own way.

    and yes, my family is normal in that regard
    I dont think that behavior is abnormal. (Either one ,to each their own really) I meant the presence (of emotional type stuff) is abnormal in my family

    Salaams sister,
    This is an interesting question actually, and I guess my family is both ways about it. Again one needs to define emotion, because that's confusing in itself. But then again I'm assuming you don't mean like internal emotion, as the majority of us love our family like crazy anyway. Alhamudulillah.
    So this is outward emotion right? Well it depends, like we only really hug and kiss etc when going somewhere like overnight, and I don't really think we say I love you to each other. But then again I cant imagine us doing that, and we already know it internally. And same with relatives, the hugging and kissing when greeting. Except with younger cousins, nieces, nephews, babies, hug and kiss them more, but then their younger so it seems the norm to do so. So yeah.. I don't even know what I'm going on about anymore lol so I'll stop.
