Childhood Traumas and its effect on Relationships.
'"A child that's being abused by its parents doesn't stop loving its parents, it stops loving itself." ~Shahida Arabi PsychAlive.org'
How we treat our children identifies how they will treat themselves & others in the future.
We design the path for how healthy or unhealthy their relationships will be, how selfishness or self-sabotage are expressed & how much suffering will be created/endured as a result.
When love is not demonstrated, children grow looking for it in the wrong places & might offer everything in trades of what they think is love but in most cases is not.
Because they approach it from a place of emotional emptiness.
Those children-adults mistake abuse for love, they submit & surrender their power because this is how they keep their partner, in desperation, they turn into people pleasers buying external approval.
In other cases, they become narcissists who live off attention & care, sucking the life out of people without feeling any true connection to themselves or others.
If you were/are a child-adult who didn’t experience the true love expected by your parents, I hope you realize that you are not only hurting yourself but also unconsciously hurting your partner, children & every relationship in the process.
Be a cycle breaker, let the trauma end and pave the road for healthier love to enter your life.
It’s never too late!
