Counseling Insights

From my care event yesterday, I learned some lessons.

Common Characteristics of Adults that grew up in alcoholic or abusive homes. (Why are we talking about me?)

  1. We don’t know what normal is, so we guess.
  2. We have a difficult time having fun.
  3. We take ourselves very seriously.
  4. Difficulty with Intimate Relationships.
  5. Feel that they are different from other people.
  6. Extremely loyal, even in the face of evidence that loyalty in undeserved.
  7. Super responsible.
  8. Constantly seek approval and affirmation.
  9. Over-react to changes over which they have no control.
  10. Judge themselves without mercy.
  11. Guilt feelings.
  12. Fear of Abandonment

Change cannot be rushed
