This is a continuation of our series looking at the different types of unhealthy parental messages described in the book Cutting Loose, by Dr. Howard M. Halpern. Today we will look at “unloviing parents.”
All of us have had experiences in life where we have felt unloved, misunderstood or uncared for at times. Which, as long as we live in a fallen world will be a universal experience. But, there are those who have experienced parents who seem to have a deficiency in either their ability or desire to be basically loving and caring. It is of these that we speak today.
"Your life is boring. You're sick of your job. Your relationship is stuck in a rut.These thoughts are circulating through many people's minds, says Nick Gould, a therapist with Midtown Family Therapy. But they don't have to be. A new year is a perfect time for people to reinvent themselves, experts say." - Nour Habib
