Family members have the potential to pass down learned behaviors to cope, healthy or not, to their progeny. One’s family members’ expression, or suppression, of anger and other negative emotions directly influences how one learns to cope with negative emotions.
How did your family members cope? Did they bottle it up and go numb? Did they steam and boil until they shrieked like a kettle? Did they throw plates on the ground? Did they send daggering stares? Did they pull and pull themselves until they snapped unpredictably? This can become a cyclical pattern, a familial curse. It is uncomfortable to deprogram but necessary to break the pattern in order to prevent it from affecting one’s life adversely. One must break what they grew to know as domestic and love in order to love themselves and accept their upbringing and their own unsavory feelings.
