If you don't have a path to recovery, having to behave like an adult in childhood can result in behaving like a child in adulthood, keeping the cycle going.

One of the hardest experiences I've had to grow through is realizing I actually am more mature than my household. That it was reasonable to be a reflection of the environment I grew up in. Growing out of that mould sure feels like breaking something sometimes.

It's super weird seeing the bad patterns and stuff in others after unlearning it. A special kind of sting.

Be grateful you're mature and intelligent enough to be aware of it at all! Most people aren't even able to connect those dots as you've done, and they end up suffering because of it.
