Undiagnosed Newbie - learning/growing working through dysfunctional family dynamics/going no contact.

Hello all,

I'm happy to be here. I have a history of multi-faceted parental abuse with emotionally abusive/neglect/religious undertones and working through the ways its effects have shown up in my life... contributed to my behavior patterns....unlearning unsupportive habits and learning how to love myself more. Hoping to learn tools from others and share my experiences in hopes it will help others as well.

hello @couragetogrow. welcome to the forum.

i'm happy to hear you are learning as you unlearn. one of the bigger problems i ran into during my early years of unlearning the dysfunctional behavior of my childhood is that nature abhors a void. as quickly as i could unlearn one dysfunctional habit, another dysfunctional habit was already rushing in to fill the void. some of the new habits were even more dysfunctional than the habits i had unlearned. my real progress did not begin until i started learning more functional habits while i was unlearning the old.

steadying support while you study.
