Family Patterns and Dating
Since Thanksgiving Day is tomorrow and many of you will be at a family gathering, it is a great time to notice some of the patterns in relationships that you have learned from your family that apply to your current dating habits.
Notice how you feel around your family. Do you feel empowered or criticized? What thoughts are going through your mind about yourself during and after your interactions with them? What are the family dynamics that push your buttons? Do they seem to link up with your love life as well?
You have learned about relationships first and foremost by your immediate family. So instead of dreading the celebration, treat the day as a discovery mission as to what self-thoughts contribute to your dating dilemmas. You may be surprised at what you uncover.
