As kids, we absorb parental teachings. Not all remain relevant with life's complexities. Thus, we unlearn some beliefs for a fulfilling life. The forum asked, "What parental teachings did you unlearn?" See the top responses.
"My mom escalates disagreements into fights, treating differences as personal attacks. It made me combative too. It was hard to discern when she was escalating or addressing the real issue. She’s a hoarder, treating expired relish as a family heirloom and holding grudges over minor deeds."
"I experienced strict discipline in childhood, unlike my in-laws who were more free-spirited, raising socially rounded but sensitive children. This resulted in a dichotomy between a less self-centered, more chaotic mindset and a more fragile one. Interestingly, we ended up marrying people from opposing family structures. Maybe it's all subjective without any causation."
