People often imagine Anger to be one of the most typical responses to growing up with adversity in one’s childhood home. But SADNESS is also a dominant emotion. We grieve all the things we lost as children: our innocence, our sense of safety, and our right to have a childhood at all.
There is a path out of that SADNESS. For all that you lost, there is much you will find that you have gained and that you can now create for yourself.
