Psychology # 24 : Golden Child (Hero)

 

 

In any dysfunctional family, if there’s a scapegoat, there will be a golden child.

 

When I was young, I was not understand / confused, how come my younger sister can do whatever she liked, go to school, enjoy after school activities without caring much about household or all the chaos in family.

 

Nobody will scold her for mistakes but I was the one who take all the blames.

 

It’s sad and miserable to grow up in such environment.  Not only affect my own well-being but it damaged sibling relationships seriously. Never have close sibling relationships as many times it reminds me those betrays / laughs / gossips.

 

How about you? Are you the golden child and how you feel about this privilege?

Quote of the day # 25 : Unsafe family

Family is supposed to be our safe haven. Sometimes, however, it’s the place where we find the deepest heartache.

 

 

Every time when I read news about child abuse at family, this hurts and made me sad.

 

Family is suppose the most safety place for naive child.  How come?

 

How about your family? Is it make you heartache? or make you feel warm and safe always?
