Childhood Pain and Disappointment
So, there is something I have always believed to be true, which is the fact that your childhood really will affect you for the rest of your life…regardless of whether you were blessed to grow up having lots and lots of happy times or if you had more bad times than you care to think about, still…what we experience as children will remain with us from now on. But at the same time, when it comes to those painful, disappointing childhood experiences, we don’t have to let them define us. Instead, we can make a decision to move beyond our past and thrive in the present. And the way we can begin doing this is by facing our childhood issues head-on. In today’s episode, I share some of my own childhood pain and disappointment, as well as three things you can do if you’re struggling in this area, too.
