"If you grew up with an emotionally immature, unavailable, or selfish parent, you may have lingering feelings of anger, loneliness, betrayal, or abandonment. You may recall your childhood as a time when your emotional needs were not met, when your feelings were dismissed, or when you took on adult levels of responsibility in an effort to compensate for your parent's behavior. These wounds can be healed, and you can move forward in your life."-- Amazon.

The author brings clarity that unmet needs and denial of emotions leads us down the wrong path: one of pathologizing ourselves ... and this is not helpful. What IS helpful is s-l-o-w-i-n-g down our emotional reactivity to find out how we really think and feel about something/someone and giving ourselves validation and self-acceptance - don't wait for your parents (or anyone else) to give it to you. Your needs are important and your parents are not the only source to get those needs met. Let them off the hook and you let yourself off the hook from playing out this fantasy.
