Yeah, Yardena, I struggle with the same issues...
I was raised by two depressed father
attempted suicide when my oldest sister was just a
baby...My mother wasn't exactly depressed, just
pretty stressed out all the time...
My parents did a good job with all of us, and we had
love and support, basically. But there just wasn't
a real sense of joy and vibrancy to the family.
It was like they could cover the basics and that's
about it...
now I find myself not knowing how to experience joy
and excitement/enthusiasm...and not knowing how
to react in it with others...
I think about that a lot when I think of raising
kids...I don't want to be like that...I want there
to be laughter in the house, I want to be able to
be excited for my kids and be enthusiastic about
their little successes, and playful.
And I'm not sure if I can be those things or not.
So yes, in answer to your question--you are definately
not alone in those fears.
