How an Unhealthy Father Daughter Relationship Damages a Daughter’s Adult Relationships

3. You are always angry

No one unhealthy father-daughter relationship pattern leads to anger.

It is primarily a lurking sense of injustice that leads to a grown-up daughter feeling anger, almost all the time.

If this sounds like you, perhaps it’s time to hit the pause button and examine your feelings more closely than you have done ever.


4. You rush into relationships too fast

An unhealthy father-daughter relationship can also be the cause of women seeking out relationship with almost every man they meet.

Patterns like absenteeism and escapism can leave a daughter feeling like they have some void to fulfill.

Unconsciously, what they feel is a need for closeness and presence and in an adult state, they look to any man that comes their way, for that support.

5. You’re not sure about feeling love

When a young girl grows up with a father, whose feelings for her is a big question, given the disengagement, it may lead to the person feeling loveless as they grow up.

Sometimes, the consequence could also be someone who doubts that they can love ever and also ever find love that can make them feel happy and safe.

A consistent lack of hope in one’s ability to give and receive love, can be a result of an unhealthy father-daughter relationship.


It’s not an easy task to open up the past, sit with it and examine what may have made you the person that you are today. But relationships with primary caregivers often give us the clues we need to move on for good in life.

With a little time and patience, we can create a world for ourselves that is safe, trustworthy and fulfilling.
