Has my childhood effected my adult life
I’m 27 and have 3 children and a fiancé.
I really struggle anytime my partner goes out and alcohol is involved. I almost want need a running schedule of what’s to happen. How much is he planning on drinking what times he back. Who’s he with.
Growing up my dad was an alcoholic and abused me and my mum. I would always always worry what time he’s home or what state he was going to be in. It’s also the fear of not knowing the mood they will be in.
This has now carried on into adult life. It isn’t just with my partner but anyone obviously it’s worse with my partner as we live together.
Is it normal to act this way? How do I approach my partner about it without seeming controlling or weird.
I really don’t want to feel this way. Even if we go and meet a couple who I know have been drinking instantly close of and feel weird.
Surely this should stop at some point?
