Do you find that when it comes to family time you’d rather have a time out? Family dynamics can be challenging for most as we tend to harbor ill feelings or unresolved issues that you’ve never really addressed. For some, their family is their savior the one they go to in times of trouble and joy, for others, they run as far away from family events as possible.
We need to understand that there are many reasons we react differently towards family members then our friends, and why the family dynamics seem to be such a strain for most.
- You’ve spent your whole life with family and find they always seem to know which hot buttons to push to upset you.
- They know too much of your history.
- For some it boils down to an isolated incident that was never forgotten or forgiven.
