Most of my psychological problems and spiritual pain were rooted in something I couldn't control — powerful dysfunctional family behavioral patterns that came before me. I decided that I would not pass this ugly family system onto my children. There are thousands of people like me that come from toxic family backgrounds of pessimism, anger, deception, abandonment, divorce, greed, self-absorption and hostility. Unless someone decides to muster up the courage to WAKE UP and break this curse, these traits will be passed on to our children...and then their children. Toxic family patterns become the model for the next generation and this vicious unhealthy cycle is repeated over and over again. In 2014, I hit rock bottom. HARD. That's when I woke up.
One of many AHA! moments I have had on this healing journey.
