4 Ways You Don't Realize Your Parents' Divorce Is Impacting You
Even though it may be a decade or more in the past, many people don’t realize how their lives are still being negatively impacted by their parents’ divorce. But by becoming aware of what’s standing in your way, you can begin to move forward and start enjoying a good life. Here are 4 ways your parents’ divorce is still affecting you:
You have trouble trusting. You panic that any relationship is going to end up like your parents’ did.
You avoid confrontation. Perhaps in your family, every discussion devolved into a confrontation, which is why you avoid communication and potential problem-solving at all costs.
You constantly check up on friends or the person you’re dating. You’re always looking for reassurance and worry that someone is going to leave you. You may even try to buy love with money.
You have a hard time believing in yourself. The chaos in your family during crucial times in your development deprived you of the attention, approval, and support you needed to try new things.
