How to heal from childhood trauma.
If your dad was emotionally unavailable, important needs weren’t met.
It’s easier to get out of a potentially toxic relationship when it first begins.
You do need people. We all do.
Splitting can be unhealthy for relationships. It keeps the “good” and loved aspects of our partner separate from the “bad” and hated aspects of them.
There are solutions and steps we can take to change our circumstances and alleviate pain, but with a hopeless outlook and “learned helplessness,” we don’t seek or accept help and can sink into depression.
Whether you’re in a new relationship or one that’s established, you may be looking to your partner to do the impossible: fill the void created by trauma.
Successful healing from emotional trauma is possible and there is hope. Success through trusting the process takes one thing.
People react to pain differently and deal with it differently. This is even truer when it comes to someone who has been emotionally hurt.
