Your Family Is 82% Dysfunctional

Your family is more than a little nuts. And you definitely should think about moving on.

This doesn't mean you need to completely cut your family out of your life...

But it does mean you need to create a healthy support system of your own. One that doesn't involve your family.

Even if you've already made a clean break from your past, it still may be haunting you. Checking in with a therapist from time to time is probably a good idea.

Yeah, it hurts. The foundation of a broken home tends to run through your veins from the get-go. Some of the best artists and philosophers grew up in less-privileged environments, though. You got to the best with what you have. <br />
"Long Day's Journey Into Night" is a good play to read to feel a little more understood. The author, Eugene O'Neill, wrote this as an autobiography of his own life and family. It helped me a bit, especially since the artistry is beautiful and Eugene turned out to be a very relevant writer, to say the least.
