Family Therapy Park Ridge IL – Bellosa Counseling – Call 847-656-5259
The families that we are born into influence practically all aspects of our daily lives, from our very first to our final moments. Our family impacts who we are now and who we eventually become for the better and for the worse. We develop our daily habits, vocabulary, customs and the way in which we view and interact with the world around us largely from our familial influences. In addition, these early significant relationships impact how we interact in other personal relationships.
People who are born into healthy, functioning families are more likely to form healthy, positive relationships as they grow through life. On the other hand, people who are born into dysfunctional families are, naturally, more prone to struggle with forming other relationships.
Although it is certainly unfortunate to be born into a dysfunctional family with unhealthy behaviors, it is possible to improve the situation. Practically all families will cope with some type of dysfunction at some point.
