I’ve always wondered how on earth I wound up so anxious. I always have been. Even as a little kid! But nothing ever happened to cause it. As I get older, I have learned that mental health issues are abundant in both parents families. Both grandmothers were raised by abusive parents and subsequently managed to effectively parent their own kids despite that. (Im the product of two lines of strong women ). Anyway, I’m sure that trauma-induced MH issues pass from parent to child by genetics and subtle behavioral abnormalities when raising the kid. Both parents turned out great, I’m doing well, but my sister and I both have this weird anxiety for “no reason”. Anyone have any info on this topic? I’m mostly just curious. Can we really “feel” effects of ancestors Hardships? How far back?
