Maybe no one has anything nice to say about your family. They may be deemed lazy by others. But YOU are different. You are a hard worker.
But why are you different? What purpose is there to being different? You are different because God is in you to be the one who turns your family name around.
Purpose comes in all forms. Even if you only advance one thing like overcoming an inherited problem; no matter what it is you should do it.
It’s important because that one thing becomes redeemed for your family line and future generations.
