If you grew up in a family where you experienced injustice, abuse, or a sense of hurt, you’re at a high risk of developing a resent-repeat syndrome in your adult life.
You may end up repeating a familiar pattern from your past or you may go 180 degrees to an opposite pattern.
These actions result in your own children being deprived in a way that carries your emotional scars forward into the next generation.
The rule is this:
The more we resent something our parents did, the more likely we are either to unknowingly repeat it, or to try so diligently NOT to repeat it that we go to the opposite extreme.
Remember, 180 degrees from craziness is often another craziness.
