Inherited Parent Traits
« on: July 10, 2019, 10:39:59 AM »
I heard a few comments from older friends of ours like; "You reminded me of your mom" or "You are just like your mom". I find it annoying at times because those comments are in line with my negative traits. I wish they would just keep those comments to themselves.

Oh yeah... I can totally relate. I guess maybe they don't know their comments are that hurtful or they just say whatever comes to their mind.

Well, I think it is best to respond to such people when they make such comments. I have realized that it is easier when you speak out and let people know how you feel.
