Emotional abuse leaves hidden scars. No one knows what goes on in your home, but you. There are no bloody wounds, no physical scars, but there are scars that change a child’s behavior, destroy esteem, and alter personalities permanently. The emotional abuse from my parents left me with low self-esteem, a feeling of unworthiness, not being “good enough. I developed no interpersonal skills, had no friends, and a complete feeling of inadequacy – “I could never be enough”. I was a child no one wanted even as a friend.
These scars are difficult to heal. I had to learn to love myself, to respect myself, to know that I was “enough”. I had to know what those words meant. I had to find someone to love me that I loved in return to realize I was worthy. I had to forgive completely. Download a FREE copy of Six Steps, my path to recovery.
