I would love to live in Malta, where my father's family live, but if I do I will have to go there without telling any of them because I will be expected to spend every weekend with them, and if I don't it will be like stabbing them in the heart and unforgiveable. I like that they have good, strong family values, but that doesn't mean I want to spend every minute of my spare time with them. If I don't though, then I may as well call myself mud and move to siberia.
As far as his last question. What he was trying to imply, is that if parents and grand parents in America are toxic, and the fact that eventually WE will be parents or grand parents, does that also mean that WE are toxic.
Ah, ok, thanks.
Well, if people don't address their own co-dependency issues, then yes, they will become just like their parents.
