All in the family...now Often, if our family of origin was less than perfect, we will create a fantasy about what the perfect family would look like. With this image in mind, we set out to form our own families, either through marriage or through an extended family following a divorce. While this generally happens out of necessity, our response is often colored by the desire to do things differently than was done in our family of origin. How about you—how have you done? You may well have done it differently, but did you do it better? If not, it’s never too late to make some changes.
