Pulling a thread

I feel like I am pulling a thread and my invisible web of stories and patterns is not only becoming visible it is also unwinding in a way that is both relieving and “frightening” all at once.

So my relationship with my husband is unearthing how my struggles with him are related (unbeknownst to me) to what I had and didn’t have in my family of origin.

Is this common? The past feeding the future?
