Personally I believe everything from our past moulds us to what we are NOW. You cannot dismiss previous experiences. Some people are strong enough in personality to move forward and disregard the past, while some of us will never recover from previous life experiences. So in short I'd say it could be connected.
I agree, I truly believe everything that happens during our formative years moulds us to what we are now, everyone is an empty vessel when we enter this world and EVENTS only make us what we are now. Some people believe our genes make us what we are but I think it is experiences in our early years obviously our parents have a massive influence.
Cop out. Some people just can't be a man/woman and accept responsibility for their own actions. It's pathetic.
I don't blame my parents for anything that I have done wrong, because I am the one who did something wrong and went through with it. Blaming someone else for your actions is a cop-out. You are the one who acted out, not them.<br />
However, I do blame my parents for some issues that I have grown up with although I am an adult now and it is my responsibility to work through those issues and get over them. I do believe that if they did certain things differently, then I wouldn't have those issues and that they should have known better but what is done is done and I am the one who is responsible for working through those issues.<br />
Blaming anyone for anything doesn't help anyone so its just better to work through it and get over it. Blaming someone for your actions is very different to blaming someone for your issues though.
Parents are essential and pivotal to the make-up of their children. If a person ends up being a scum bag, the parents can look to themselves.....9 times out of ten. For the brats who want to blame them....they can kiss my hind side, as well.
100% cop-out .......you are a kid once in your life and an adult for the rest of it ...you make your own choices as an adult
unless they did something horrendous - illegal - to you, it's a load of crappe.
We all make choices . . And we all face consequences ba<x>sed on those choices<br />
Blaming ones parents is the biggest cop out in the world
MMM I think maybe you have a fr<x>ame where you could blame them. Maybe the first few years after you leave home, but at some point you have to take responisibility for your own actions. You can't blame someone else forever, or you'll never improve yourself.
