The Life and Times of A Man.
I live in fear of turning out like my NM! I've given my DD permission to put a bullet between my eyes if I show the slightest sign!The good news is, any therapist will no doubt tell you about "precognition" or prior knowledge. It just means (mercifully) that because we recognize our mothers' behaviours as dysfunctional we are unlikely to repeat them.Since you've gained that recognition damn near 40 years earlier than I have, I'm confident that you have a good shot at breaking the pattern.
Thanks for you vote of confidence, I'm slowing gaining the much needed confidence in myself that I need to overcome a great many hurdles!
