In the story “Tito’s Goodbye” by Cristina Garcia, the author tells of the story of an immigrant, Tito Urena, who has poor relationship with his family.

When he died alone in his office, none of his family members even noticed and he stayed dead in the office for two day only for the police to locate his girlfriend later. From Tito’s story, the theme of family relationship emerges, and one learns about the disadvantages of having poor relationship with family. The immigrant, Tito Urena, is portrayed as one that had poor relationship with his family members. He is shown as having not communicated with his family for a long time. Additionally, he was involved in a conflict with one Haydee, who was once his wife, with whom he had separated for 16 years (Garcia 156). If he had a good relationship with his family members, they would have probably noticed that he was missing sooner than two days and he would have been given a better send-off.
The story also shows the remarkable isolation of Tito during the time of his death, as well as after his death. A highlight of this story is where Tito suffers a heart attack that cuts his life short while in his office. At the time of his death, Tito had no one around him in his office, as he was all alone.

In this essay it is presented that a relationship always diffuses anxiety due to perception of either too high a distance or too much closeness in a relationship. Moreover, the level of anxiety in any one family will be strong-minded by the existing levels of outside stress, such as your close friends, your relatives, or your customers/workmates.
According to them, happiness and life satisfaction are similarly available to the young and the old, women and men, blacks and whites, the rich and the working-class and they maintain that clues to well-being can be determined by knowing about the individual's traits, close relationships, work experiences, culture, and religiosity.
Social relationships are voluntary, but the familial ones are not (Benjamin, 1977). When 'power' or rules are understood to refer to a form of involuntary relationship, this power will lead to abuses. So, dictatorships in family relations will develop duplicity, passive rebellion (passive aggressive behavior), and other forms of behavior that in an interpersonal relationship would be called psychopathological (Hill, 1949), and the therapist is to deal with it.
The environment in which someone grows in greatly determines his attitude and character where moral values control the flow of ideas and images (Perloff R, 2003). An individual cannot develop a moral compass unless people around them use clear, sharp language of defining what is right or wrong (Perloff R, 2003).
