#31: The problems we inherit

[Lower differentiated people] are the people who are less flexible, less adaptable, and more emotionally dependent on those about them. […] They inherit a high percentage of all human problems. At the other extreme are those who are more differentiated…[they] are more flexible, more adaptable, and more independent of the emotionality about them
— Family Therapy in Clinical Practice, Dr. Murray Bowen
