These are very important topics to understand. Either for yourself or for somebody you love. Welcome to the world of self-help and therapy, where words don't come easy.
Being raised in a dysfunctional family and having gone through my own personal struggles, I've started my own healing journey. I want to share some books which can contribute to your own recovery process or for somebody you know and care for. Although I was pretty selective in what is recommended here, I encourage you to read reviews of these books by other people before investing your time and money. Only you can make the correct choices based on your past.
There is a way to break dysfunctional family chain and stop repeating destructive behavioral patterns. You can make a difference. It is a process, it will take time. If the problem is identified, it's already a significant step to recovery and freedom. I sincerely wish you to start your own way to the light as early as possible.
