In this video, I discuss some of the roles you may be accustomed to playing in your family.

Holiday time can be one of the most stressful times of the year for you because of family and family roles your family has grown accustomed to playing.

Could I be impacted by family roles?

All families have family roles as it is something that keeps order and structure within a family system. However, if the family roles are unhealthy and unrealistic, you can find yourself feeling very depressed, isolated, and misunderstood. It’s important to understand the role you play so that you can “safely” get out of it and move on with your life.

What are family roles?

Common family roles that you may play includes the family hero, mascot/clown, scapegoat, and lost child. These roles may be fluid throughout the years and only apply to you at certain times within your family. In the following video, I offer a more detailed view of each role.

 

Can you relate to any of these roles?
