I have often heard how stories are generational. I didn't know how, until now.
My mother has become her mother. One of us has become our aunt. I will not be anyone other than myself.
I see, though, how some people grow to becoming their fathers or their mothers, repeating the same mistakes, having the same values, eventually with the same results, etc.
The victims will constantly strive to keep on being victims.
I think that's dumb, but hey, knock yourself out.
