031: The FOO Family of Origin and You with Julia LMFT is a pillar podcast. The way we developed from an early age in our family or origin, including mothers and fathers, mothers and mothers, grandparents, or adoptive parents, have a significant impact on how we interact in relationships today and how we express needs.
When you hear things like, oh they have Daddy Issues or Mommy Issues, they refer to family of origin trauma. Oftentimes, there may not be overt trauma, but, to put it simply, the needs of a child are overlooked or a child finds that the parent is not reliably available to meet their needs. How does this manifest? It manifests in many ways. An adult who experienced inconsistent attention and did not have their needs reliably met as a child, may find themselves in relationships where they are the caregiver. Alternatively, they may develop attachment issues of another kind and become avoidant of commitment.
How we express our needs and have them met by caretakers early in life has a profound impact on how we are able to express ourselves in relationships and the types of relationships we engage in. When you start to explore this and are able to identify your own patterns, the healing can begin and you find genuine ways to express your needs and have them met in return. Shifting accountability to YOU from The Family of Origin and You.
