A 30-year-old female asked:

Relationship pattern: We learn a lot about relationships from the models that our parents provide for us. Good, bad, or neutral, we can find ourselves repeating relationship patterns that we observe growing up. The answer to your question is likely more complicated than an "absent father" though that would be an important area to explore. A good therapist can help you sort through, and fix, these difficult patterns.

Know thyself: I would recommend it. That you are curious about yourself and want to be a better person makes me think you might benefit from some work with a good psychologist. Could you function well in life without seeing one? Perhaps. But you may find that working with a therapist brings you even more mental wellness.

Do something today that will help you tomorrow 4. Keep doing #3
