Anyone can have a child and call themselves “a parent”.
A real parent is someone who puts that child above their own selfish needs & wants.
Lead to self-sabotage, destructive relationship behavior, neediness, or a variety of other attachment problems.
Unhealthy view of relationships – if a parent who exploded, constantly overcritical, vanished or demanded perfection, we don’t have a healthy view of real, caring relationships.
Parent asking the child to be their parent, and to fix and support them.
Parents actively resist you showing autonomy and becoming an independently entity.
You noticed any child acting like this?
Even in workplace, I worked with people who always laugh for silly jokes or minor / non-sense things.
At surface, they seem happy for live and optimistic for everything, but I just knew they are masking their insecure / shame and guilty by fake happiness.
That’s why we heard stories from time to time, mentioning this or that person seems happy all times but how come they commit suicide or doing horrible things to others suddenly.
What do you think? You met someone like this?
