I was at my S.z support group on Tuesday and this ponder has hit me even more.
A lot of the people in my support group have had abusive parents and a very traumatic childhood. I’ve also read of some very broken childhoods here as well. I admire you all for living through it and I wish it never happened to you all.
But one guy said that he was sure his parents couldn’t love him because they didn’t even love each other.
I know that many articles like to say it’s all Nurture. It’s all how you were raised. So according to all the theories of how you were raised, I shouldn’t have Sz at all. For me it has to be nature, because I was nurtured pretty well I think.
Am I that much of the odd man out on this one? My parents are still together and still like hanging out with each other. I grew up in a pretty stable home considering…
My parents never yelled at any of my siblings or I and none of us have ever been hit or verbally abused. They have been really supportive of all of us when they can and have tried to help all of us the best they can.
I was wondering… The theory of parents not loving each other causes them not to love the kids… does that ring true?
Just a ponder…
