Re: Do we become our parents?

I've also realized that I sigh a lot when I'm around DM - it used to be a habit, now it seems that I relapse when I'm around DM great... and she always has to comment on it ...

Oooo, that's a vicious cycle! ... you sigh, your DM comments, ... you sigh again..... (now why would that be? )

Re: Do we become our parents?

yeah - I was good too....I really wanted to point out that she was doing it too - however, the fact that she does it does not negate the fact that I do it (I realized that I would have been "blameshifting"- is that the correct term?)

Re: Do we become our parents?

arhggggg....

I'm doing it again....using the same speach patterns as my DM

how can I stop it irritates me when she does it, but I'm doing too


This is what DM does (& so do I) - she'll repeat entire conversations

ex:

Well, Sue said blah, blah, and blab;
then I said twitter, twitter, twit.
Then she said yappity, yappity, yap.
I think ____, and told her yack, yack, yackity.

Re: Do we become our parents?

Re: Do we become our parents?

My goal in life is to become my parents. Or at least like them, anyway.

At least 2 phone calls a day, pouting and temper tantrums when things don't work out my way... I don't want to, but I'm skeered.
