Dysfunctional Families: The Truth Behind the Happy Family Facade

Are you a victim of Spider Love?
Does your dysfunctional family drain all your energy?

Dysfunctional Families Dysfunctional Families: The Truth Behind the Happy Family Facade is a collection of 45 essays offering reflections on recovering from dysfunctional family dynamics, caregiving, the Drama Addiction, developing self-esteem and learning to live authentically, and spirituality.

This book exposes many of the secrets that hide in dysfunctional families, and also provides a profoundly unique perspective on money problems, clearing clutter, creating your own reality, and more.

The only way to heal from the trauma of dysfunctional family life and discover who we really are is to expose the secrets we grew up with, see through the illusions we were taught, and figure out what’s really true about our families, ourselves, and the world.

  • Understand all of your relationships more clearly

  • Learn how to be there for yourself and take care of your own needs

When I was caregiving for my elderly parents from 2001 to 2008, I talked with many other caregivers who were trying to cope with dysfunctional family issues at the same time that they had to navigate the difficult experience of caregiving. I started blogging on dysfunctional families because I saw a need for exposing the secrets that we grow up with in our dysfunctional families.

The more clearly we can see the issues, the more authentic we become.
