The concept of overcoming the effects of abuse, especially from your childhood can be a challenge. I had a number of people tell me after I had turned 18, it was up to me to learn to be responsible for my own feelings. Again, it goes back to “it’s nice in theory, but in actuality, it’s not so easily put into practice.
I never found a book or a modality which erased the memory of the abuse or took away the sadness which engulfed me at times when I longed for parents who would demonstrate their love for me. I spent a great deal of time searching for anything that would make sense of my upbringing, but the explanation was as elusive as the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It just wasn’t possible.
