The very word family can bring very complex emotions to the front. Not all families see and feel the same way about their childhood. There is always one or two siblings who feel they were handed the short end of the stick. Either by one or both parents. Depending on your childhood and current family situation, these feelings could be mostly positive, mostly negative, or an equal mix of both. The same siblings who were raised exactly the same way in the same situation will tell it differently ...
If you've experienced a toxic family dynamic, your feelings may go beyond frustration or annoyance. Instead, interacting with or even thinking about your family might cause significant emotional distress.
