Many people suffer because of the unbroken cycles of their parents, learning patterns of behavior that may be repeated throughout their lives. When a girl grows up receiving abuse from the hand of her father, and seeing her mother support it or passively accept it, that girl might learn that this is normal.
Later in life, that same woman seeks out partners who are emotionally manipulative, because that is the vision of love that has been impressed on them.
Fortunately, many people manage to break the cycle of abuse, to step out of the previous pattern, even though it might be scary to venture into the unknown.
In this episode, Natasha Charlton tells Kurt a story about childhood trauma, about repeating patterns, and finding freedom from those patterns, freedom to be oneself.
