A question that I am sometimes asked is: "As an adult child of alcohol, why am I being cheated on my spouse?" My experience of working with ACoA and adults from inactive homes has led me to identify unique opportunities that may address this passive issue.
When you have a home-fueled & non-assertive & # 39; Communication, you are taught to deny yourself. You are not taught to ask what you need or what you want. Instead, you are taught to ignore your feelings, your inner needs, and to minimize your desires. Because your self-love models have not reflected you the importance of honoring Self, your programming is disabled. As an adult, you do not gain weight towards healthy relationships that honor you.
The majority of ACoA is married with emotional and dysfunctional equations. Their partners are creatures that equate to the emotional levels of their child protection workers. Although their spouses are likely to meet their parents, co-workers are often morally equivalent to the types of power plants that ACoA lived with as a child.
To make matters even more complex, many ACOA develop anxiety disorders because they have been conditioned to deny themselves. This condemnation of the self creates an energy block in the body. This blockage of energy appears in the body in many areas, such as headache, dizziness, tremor, insomnia, stomach discomfort, rash, asthma, brain nebulae, forgetfulness and the effects of the disorder.
An attempt is made to cheat the ACOA sometimes as a way to escape the spiritual laundry and the general fears they find themselves. Very often, when ACoA discovers that they are married to one of their parents, the shock is so overwhelming that they seek a foreign romantic relationship, as one might have for Xanex. The extramarital affair works like a disturbance, and while work as a means of hiding anxiety temporarily, long-term consequences are much more devastating than ACoA currently recognizes.
In the perfect world, all bees would marry healthy partners and of course – be healthy automatic individuals before they always married in the first place. But in a world we live in, where most beings today are asleep – and run their lives on autonomous flights – which are ridiculously unaware that they are living their lives by a disturbance system they learned in their childhood home – all too often The first round of marriage for ACoA is not the healthiest.
ACoA, like many adults from nursing homes cheating for many reasons – but in my opinion – did so primarily because of their inability to honor themselves – be honest – and acknowledge the fall of choice to be honest and thus honor themselves .
It is not easy to deal with oneself unhappiness within the marriage and to remember so knowingly. It is heroic to – instead of doing another thing in our experience to help us escape our personal misfortune – to face the death of our marriage. To honor oneself, noble efforts are indeed, especially when the material and wonderful world we live in is filled with creatures who prefer to avoid and refuse – then to deal with and heal and then honor themselves.
