Codependency Runs in the Family
Emotional health comes from healthy habits and skills in emotional regulation. Most of these habits are taught to us from positive roles models in our family when we are growing up. If we didn’t have positive role models when we were young, we can end up lacking the relationship skills we need to keep our family relations warm and connected.
Bad habits can also be passed down through families.
Just like healthy habits, dysfunctional behaviour is also behaviour that is usually learned from our family. Filling any gaps we may have in our emotional development will help break the chain for us to step into a brighter future.
