Do you still hold resentments against our parents?

Posted by   + Show Post

For things they did when you were a kid?

Does it effect your parenting now?

Yes & yes. I will forever have self-esteem issues because of my mother. I refuse to do that to my children.

I always think it is so sad when I hear adults yapping about their crummy parents. Unless your parent was a child-molester, or beat you up every day, you need to get over it.

Stop talking about it, stop re-living it. The only thing to make yourself feel better is by being a better parent to your own kids. Period.

My oldest sister LIVES this shit..... it has colored every aspect of her life. When someone tells her to stop, that the incident she is talking about NEVER FREAKING HAPPENDED she will come up with a new one. It's ridiculous. Get some therapy, distance yourself, whatever, but stop living it!

UGH!
