The Legacy of Abuse

“Abuse decimates self-esteem. It cripples confidence and fosters self-doubt and self-hatred. People who’ve suffered abuse do not believe in themselves or their abilities. They do not feel entitled to good things or real love. They cling to the people who have mistreated them because, at their core, they still feel like bad, unworthy little kids who truly believe they must, as irrational as it may sound, get their parents to love them before they can move on with thier lives.”
