Happy relationships don’t rely on fate, they don’t rely on our parents, or their parents before them. They rely on communication, the right interaction and the choices we make. A choice we make to do things better. As we look back through the generations, we may often see patterns emerging of behaviour that we shouldn’t want to repeat.
We must want to chart our own path, our own journey, regardless of what’s gone before us. Unless we make a conscious decision to change things, we will unconsciously emulate our parents’ failings and their parents’ failings before them. Ultimately, all it does is allow history to repeat itself for us and our own children.
