All, I am having a hard time pinpointing my source of repression. My parents were not abusive to me, but they were absent both emotionally and cognitively. I raised myself and my sister, and lived through a relatively loveless childhood where my parents actively dissociated from typical parenting duties. My parents divorced when I was 13, and at the time I felt I was happier with them no longer arguing daily. Nobody told me to push down anger or sadness, and both of my parents were open to my feelings, but I never really felt comforted. In order to continue to improve I feel I need to better understand the source of my repression. Any suggestions?
