Time to Stop Blaming Your Parents

DonnaBarnes We Have Issues Leave a Comment

Are your childhood issues ruining your relationships? That’s your fault, not your parents. You have the power to stop allowing your demons to sabotage your chance at true love.

As an adult, you have free will to make whatever choices you want. Your parents may have created your feelings of fear, insecurity, or anger but if you’re no longer living in their house and under their control then you can’t blame them for your behavior. No one can make you do anything.

Playing the victim is never attractive and blame is a toxic red flag. It’s so much more empowering (and attractive) when you recognize what your issues are, and what triggers them. When those issues get triggered by your relationship take responsibility and tell your partner it’s not about him/her. Acknowledge it’s your issue and assure him/her you’re working on it. That should inspire a loving, supportive response, instead of creating a defensive argument.
