Adult Trauma/ Childhood Emotional Neglect

...You can't explain it, but you know something is missing within you...

Woman experiencing anxiety and depression.

Adults who as children grow up in a household where their emotional needs were met with avoidance, rejection, scolding or even over-indulgence are often times left to figure out how to deal with their emotional needs on their own. The challenge, however, is that you don’t know what you don’t know, and if as a child no one ever taught you that your feelings and emotions are important and valid, you may grow up to become an adult who suppresses, avoids or ignores them in order to cope. An inability to deal with emotions in healthy ways can undoubtedly lead to problems in your relationships, physical and mental health issues.

Relationship Issues

What makes any relationship "good"? Take a moment to think about that question and what that means to you.

Relationship conflict skills improve relationships,Some relationships are seemingly effortless, while others require a dedicated commitment to reach a level of understanding, acceptance and compromise in order to make them work. However, when relationship dynamics are built on principles that are mainly favorable for one side and not so much for the other, the relationship can become a source of stress and anxiety that is sustained by feelings of guilt or obligation. The problems that arise from unhealthy relationships are not just uncomfortable, they can deeply impact people on a physical and emotional level.
