Here are opposite real-life results when parenthood is abusive, crushing, or overly negative.
Bob was a Christian. He knew, because of his faith, that he’s worth something to God even if he’s being abused and under-affirmed by his parent.
Bob was able to see the “source” - his parent, who communicated only negativity or outright abuse, was sick and in need of help.
Bob stood up for himself. He accepted all incoming data and went beyond them to celebrate his innate self amid trials.
You can survive abusive parents.
Ultimately, every person is responsible for his or her own grand adjustment and wholeness.
“Negative feedback can make us bitter or better.”
