Breaking Bondage to Family of Origin Pain

In this older video from Oprah’s LifeClass, the creator of Imago Relationship Therapy, Dr. Harville Hendrix guides a couple to work through the abusive husband’s family of origin memories.

The video demonstrates how we carry our family of origin with us in our decisions if we are not aware. Until we recognize that we are doing so, we struggle to abstain from unhealthy behaviors. When we practice awareness, we can choose to be free from bondage to what hurt us in the past.
