If you grew up in a family where your feelings were ignored, you felt misunderstood, made to feel small and unimportant, you probably learned to adapt the best way you could. You might have learned to disconnect from your true self and became who you needed to become to be accepted and loved. This disconnection can return later in life and create self-sabotage, anxiety disorders with an inability to trust yourself in decision making. It can cause repeated patterns of attracting or staying too long in toxic relationships. Many adults that grew up on dysfunctional families carry shame, guilt, and feelings of not being good enough. For many of us, we grew up feeling like everything was all our fault, we needed to walk on eggshells and voice our thoughts, feelings, or beliefs were squashed. For some of us today we feel anxious to set healthy boundaries or to confront others that are unkind to us or try to gaslight us. Help is available
