I was unable to have any long-term healthy romantic relationships until I was 50.
That’s when I was diagnosed and began healing Child Abuse PTSD.
Unhealthy relationships was a core issue for me, along with low grade chronic depression, anger, anxiety and alcohol addiction and made me desperate enough to seek intense therapy.
My wonderful “shrink” linked my problems to my Inner Child of the Past. I had to at least begin healing & releasing the FIBS (False Ideas & beliefs) such as “unworthiness” of my childhood in order to relate in healthy ways.
After 2 yrs. of processes of re-connection with my little girl and honoring my Inner Child, I met my husband of 22 years because I had begun to replace the fear with love.
This is only the tip of the iceberg of the tools and processes which worked for me to live more peacefully.
