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.
