Assess how your childhood experiences shape who you've become in your adult relationships. Aim to have honest, nondefensive conversations about the roles family members played in teaching you how to love. Determine the connections between experiences from your past that may be keeping you from enjoying fulfilling relationships now. Get it out into the open. Assess and identify the real issues so you can get to the business of healing and moving on.
