Fred sees a lot of people who replicate their early relationships especially if they were traumatic. They repeat things they learned and experienced while young.
You may say your mom is crazy or your dad is mean. But there may be some things that you can focus on.
From a very early age, we have a template in our mind of what a dad or a mom should be doing. When we don't receive what we expect from a parent, we have to find a way to fill in the gap.
When your parents distanced themselves or got on your case about something, you probably absorbed that as responsibility. You may feel responsible for the gap in the relationship.
As you become an adult, keep in mind that you may be replicating old behaviors.
Try working toward the reality. Work toward the reality of what the relationship is.
You're not giving in, you're being smart.
