It starts with our parents. It’s easy to blame them for the way we turn out and although there is some merit, justification and perfectly true for some of us, I’m not sure how fair in reality it really is when we look at the bigger picture.
I know I was a victim and whilst some of us will blame and continue to blame our parents for us being victims and how we turn out, some of our parents will already be victims themselves and so the cycle continues. Some of us will have been or will continue to be victims. Some of us may not even know that we are, but that is what we are.
It doesn’t make any of what happens to us right, but for some of us it’s up to us to change things. Does anyone ever come through their childhood completely unscathed?
From what I’ve seen and know and from my own personal journey, I personally don’t think we do.
