i came to the realization today in the shower that maybe mom never really intervened w/dad and corporal punishment bc she was socialized to accept it as ok and not bc she didn't feel like protecting me
@shivana I’ve got similar feelings. My mental health/self worth/body issues are 80% my parents’ doing, but in the last few years I’ve realized they both have HUGE mental health probs too and that caused a lot of it. I’m still mad they took it out on me and didn’t like, THINK, but it helps me be more objective/distant about bad memories
@hugbox yeah yeah that's it exactly. it has its use as a realization even if it's not like. a FIX. i just gotta keep reminding myself that. thanks <3
