The foundations of who you are.
Your childhood determines how you see the world, how you see yourself, how you deal with things, how you think about things, what your values are, how you work, how you live, how you love, how you parent, everything.
A troubled childhood doesn't necessarily mean you'll have a troubled life. But you might. Just as a happy childhood doesn't necessarily mean you'll be successful, but you might. The 'nature vs nurture' debate has long been discussed the world over. The difference here is your resilience, your determination, your belief in yourself, your knowledge from the world and education, and so many other factors. But ultimately, how you deal with things in life come from childhood.
One child might take a criticism and turn it inward, and it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Another child might take that same criticism and find a fire within, a determination to prove the world wrong - and they do.
Events don't have to have been deliberate acts intended to upset; often, people don't realise what damage a simple passing comment can cause.
How does your childhood affect you, good and bad? What if you could use your mind/brain to change things you'd like to change, to stop damaging stories, beliefs, and scars from causing any more harm? What would you be like now, who would you be, if things had been different?
There is always a way to heal. You can't change the past - but you can step into your future - it's in your hands. I can and have helped hundreds of people move forward from upsetting memories, so they can create a life they are secure in. Get in touch if this is something you feel you could benefit from.
