How your parents loved you as a child, and each other (or didn’t) still impacts your love life. Here is how.
We learn about love and relationship from our parents, or guardians – first and foremost. The patterns we pick at that early age are often repeated and re-lived throughout our adult life. If we saw our parents not loving each other, treating each other badly, we will learn that is love.
Of course, an even bigger part in this equation is how they loved us – did they show us love, did they treat us like we are worthy of love just as we are. Most parents did not, and many do not today – even though that is changing. But for most of us who are grown ups today, we learned we need to deserve love by behaving a certain way, and we learned we aren’t good enough just as we are.
Here is a video that explains how these patterns and legacy influence our love life, relationships in general, and the partners we attract and date.
LET’S HEAR FROM YOU
