Many of us have developed unhealthy attachment styles as kids. As adults, we are unconsciously still driven towards relationships that mimic the toxicity and pain we experienced in our childhood.

Learning how to stop letting toxic relationships rule our lives is a challenging and uncomfortable process. But it is not as painful as spending the rest of our lives with people that are capable of making us miserable…

“If it costs you your peace, it is too expensive.”

I firmly believe that happiness is a choice and being happy is a skill that can be learned and improved. But that was not always the case.

You have learned how your primary caregivers react and treat you. For example: When you cried to signal that you need something, what did they do? Did they do anything at all or left you sobbing?
