For me, it was my maternal grandmother - "Bubba" - she was not a hugger or very expressive, however
her consistent loving energy to me was a "life-safer". My Mom did a great job while I was young, but I think she became overwhelmed later with the four other sons and the ww2 veteran husband in her life.
I want to write more about my family dynamics later, however, in psychology, there is a theory that if a child does not have this unconditional lover while growing up, they usually do not have a well-developed conscience. The unloved child turns into the "sociopath", the "psychopath", the criminal, etc.
Who was most important to you?
