If you're one of the rare people who received unconditional love from both parents at an early age, your relationships are probably in fairly good shape, despite your reticence at expressing your true feelings. But if you're like most of us and suffered through an imperfect childhood, it's those experiences that have affected your relationships thus far in your life. Your feelings are wounded very easily, but rather than confront the person who has hurt you, you nurse your wounds in private and add the experience as the latest in a long line of examples of the reality of the cold, cruel world.
You trust few, or maybe even no one. Your fear of connection is palpable, not because you're afraid of love, but because you're afraid of losing it. At this rate, sooner or later, you might get out of touch with your feelings altogether.You may always hunger for the emotional stability you lacked as a child, but that doesn't mean you can't find it as an adult. The big news is, there's more than one person out there in the world who can provide it for you. But to find them, you've got to believe it's possible. Let this be your mantra: 'I deserve love.' Cast out the disbelief inside you, and have faith that you'll find what you seek.
