"Abandonment experiences and boundary violations are in no way indictments of a child’s innate goodness and value. Instead, they reveal the flawed thinking, false beliefs, and impaired behaviors of those who hurt them. Still, the wounds are struck deep in their young hearts and minds, and the very real pain can still be felt today. The causes of emotional injury need to be understood and accepted so they can heal. Until that occurs, the pain will stay with them, becoming a driving force in their adult lives."
The first step to solving a problem is admitting that the problem exists. But you’re my problem. Or was I yours? Have you, at some point, went to sleep thinking of me? Have you, at some point, regretted that you ever left? No, I don’t need you now. These 20 years have been a concrete proof. But will I ever have closure to the most profound question of my life; why did you leave? Why did you gave up?
