Example text

Just as you look at your own parents to illuminate your relationship choices and behavior, you have to look at his parents to see what kind of messages he picked up along the way from his family and what parental messages he’s operating under. They’re different and have to be viewed inde- 14 “Oh, No! He’s Just Like My Father” pendently. You can’t use your family system to predict his behavior because pasts are not interchangeable. He might think you should be like his mom, and he may start turning into his dad, but maybe that’s not your idea of a great relationship.

We’ll also examine the similarities between your parents and the mates you choose. You may feel you are stuck in a relationship rut, but once you are better informed, you can begin to make changes. In the past you might have chosen a partner who didn’t ask much of you emotionally and didn’t demand that you grow as a person within the relationship. This arrangement might have sounded easy at fi rst, but if you eventually decided you wanted to grow and your partner couldn’t handle intimacy, you found yourself stuck at a certain level and couldn’t move beyond that.

But unconsciously we still seek it out. That we would get involved in a situation that wasn’t in our best interests doesn’t make much sense on the surface, yet the parallels between our current relationship and what we experienced growing up are always there. If we were yelled at a lot in childhood, you would think we’d search for the opposite and find someone nice and quiet who wouldn’t raise his voice in a million years. But what we might not see is that subconsciously we equate displeasure with caring.
