The most important connection that a person has is their family. When you have a healthy relationship with your family, the feeling of stability comes easy to you. Stability also offers an easier time venturing into the world and achieving progressive milestones in life. On the other hand, if something about your relationship with your family, especially your primary caregivers, fails, you might experience massive instability and loss of focus. While conflict can be a healthy part of family life, dysfunction isn't, and it has far-reaching effects on all members.
