35. Well, I (thankfully) had little adversity or no trauma in my early life...

But my parents did.

My mom's parents divorced and sold their house when she was 19 and away at college. Both of them were alcoholics, and my grandma had bipolar, borderline, and narcissistic personal disorders.

My dad was an Air Force brat who had a strict USAF officer as a father and an alcoholic mother. They also divorced at some point in my dad's early life.

Do you reckon that, in light of all that, that impacted the way they raised me-for better or worse? (hopefully better!)
