It’s damned hard to break emotional patterns from our past. Damn. Hard.
If we had a bit of a rough start emotionally it can stay with us forever.
Some of us repeat the same emotional environment:
Some of us smother our emotions because we can’t handle them. Some of us process our emotions consciously. Some of us take each moment as it comes.
Some of us are overwhelmed by any sign of emotional distress in our children:
Some of us try to be our child’s friend. Some of us treat our children as if they are adults. Some of us are overly protective.
Some of us are aware of our emotional triggers and parent consciously as much as we can. Sometimes we get it wrong, and we reconnect with our kids afterwards.
Where are you at today?
What do you do when you realise things aren’t working out for your children as you intended?
Are you doing the same things every day, and expecting different results?
