This one has a deep meaning, and represents a familiar familial tension that often results when we come back together yet fail to recognize each other's subtle character changes. As though our inner circle of friends and acquaintances are more apt to accept us as we are, yet family often sees us the way we've always been ... and so an adjustment period sometimes seems necessary. This shows the peace that can come after the strife is experienced. Perhaps this seems backwards to how most others' families work. What is your experience?
