Do any of the statements below describe you?

  • We became isolated and afraid of people and authority figures.
  • We became approval seekers and lost our identity in the process.
  • We are frightened of angry people and any personal criticism.
  • We become alcoholics, marry them or both, or find another compulsive personality such as a workaholic to fulfill our abandonment needs.
  • We live life from the viewpoint of victims and we are attracted by that weakness in our love and friendship relationships.
  • We have an overdeveloped sense of responsibility and it is easier for us to be concerned with others rather than ourselves
  • We get guilt feelings when we stand up for ourselves instead of giving in to others.
  • We became addicted to excitement.
  • We confuse love and pity and tend to “love” people we can “pity” and “rescue.”
  • We have “stuffed” our feelings and have lost the ability to feel or express our feelings.
  • We judge ourselves harshly and have a very low sense of self-esteem.
  • We are dependent personalities who are terrified of abandonment and will do anything to hold on to a relationship in order not to experience painful abandonment feelings.
  • We are reactors rather than actors.

There is hope and healing.
