MANY TIMES WHEN ADULTS HAVE HAD DIFFICULT CHILDHOODS (trauma, basic needs not met, familial instability, abandonment, abuse, fear, confusion, personal illness or family members’ illnesses) THE STABLE AND SECURE FOUNDATIONS WHICH SHOULD HAVE DEVELOPED, NEVER FORMED. THESE HEALTHY FOUNDATIONS ARE IMPERATIVE IN ALLOWING YOUNGSTERS TO EVENTUALLY LEAVE THE NEST, EXPLORE, QUESTION, EXPERIMENT, FAIL, LEARN, AND STILL BE ABLE TO COME BACK TO LOVE, KINDNESS, APPROPRIATE CONSEQUENCES, REASONABLE BOUNDARIES, AND ACCEPTANCE. THESE ACTIONS AND RESPONSES ARE NEEDED IN ORDER TO HELP CHILDREN, WHO ARE NOW ADULTS, TO FORM A HEALTHY SENSE OF SELF AND TO BE ABLE TO HEALTHFULLY SELF REGULATE.

WERE YOU NOT THE EXACT SAME PERSON ONE SECOND BEFORE, AND ONE SECOND AFTER YOU RECEIVED BAD NEWS? THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO STATES IS YOUR PERCEPTION OF THAT NEWS, AND HOW YOU HAVE ALLOWED THE NEWS TO CHANGE YOUR MENTAL, AND THEREFORE YOUR PHYSICAL, STATE.
