You may find yourself struggling with dating, having friends, connecting with coworkers or your boss, etc. because of a deep-seeded fear of revealing your dysfunctional family to them. It isn’t easy to tell someone that you have a dysfunctional, estranged, or complicated family.
Our society has misinformed us about the functionality of family which causes us to feel insecure about the imperfections within the family.
You shouldn’t be ashamed of the reality that your family isn’t healthy. When dating, making friends, or connecting with other respected individuals such as coworkers or your boss, you should feel confident in standing your ground and living out your reality.
