okay so i dont know how much you guys place on the way your parents parent you affects your personality, but i'm the textbook example of someone whos parents parented them 'neglectful-indulgent' (they were very cold and emotionally detached) and my attachment style growing up was avoidant. and as a grown up i'm a very closed off person, i dont share my feelings, i have problems being intimate, and i try my hardest to close myself off from people.
anyway my husband LOVES me to death, and although i'm not sure i'm capable of love in the conventional sense, i love him to the best of my ability. is there anyway i can get over my intimacy problems?
i'm not BLAMING my parents, i understand they tried their hardest, and i love them for putting up with my mental health issues (i'm bipolar and have OCD) i just wish for my husband and son i could be a better person.
anyone have experience with this? please?
