I don't know if my parents are in there or not. Mostly, they are self-deceptive and seem to have no problem either straight up lying or being deceptive to other people. I'm way too passive and I don't know if was a learned behavior or if the tendancy is hardwired, but I spent my childhood doing as I was told and thinking that I didn't know much of anything. The things I was complimented on were things I had little control over (my appearance for one). Using your brain and being your own person were not things that were stressed.
I'm at a time in my life where I've been looking back a great deal. I often wonder how much my upbringing and how much my parents' personalities affected me or if I was always destined to be a failure.
Pretty sure I need to let this go and try to focus on more productive issues as its really too late for me to change my personality at this point.
