    this was a good article I needed it, I am not sure what baggage I brought from my past, I am sure a lot and it is part of the troubles I have as an adult.

      Glad you got something out of it. It’s always worth doing a little digging in one’s own past to understand one self better. Self examination is the cornerstone of emotional healing

    Thanks for sharing this! I struggle with feeling responsible for everything and everyone and I don’t see any way that this could have stemmed from my parents. It kind of perplexes me, not knowing where it all comes from.

      It can come from any important experience, often it goes back to the family or other early influences. Sometimes it takes time to unpeel all the layers. Being aware is the most important step. Thank you for your thoughts

        Yes, awareness has helped me a great deal. And yes, while I had very healthy and nurturing parents, some other parts of my childhood weren’t so smooth. Thanks again.
