The ACA Laundry List

These are some characteristics we seem to have in common due to being brought up in an alcoholic or dysfunctional household.

We became isolated and afraid of people and authority figures.
We became approval seekers and lost our identity in the process.
We are frightened by angry people and any personal criticism.
We judge ourselves harshly and have a very low sense of self-esteem

We live life from the viewpoint of victims and are attracted by that weakness in our love and friendship relationships.
We get guilt feelings when we stand up for ourselves instead of giving in to others.
