April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. When I got on Facebook today, I noticed someone had shared something I wrote two years ago.
I shared it even though I might get backlash from certain people. As I continue to struggle and work towards getting my emotional health back after so much trauma, I can definitely attest to this:
Fear is not a good thing. When a child’s brain is wired with fear from harsh/abusive parenting, he/she will likely suffer with anxiety for the rest of his/her life. This is not good and can make the person feel like a failure because no matter how hard he/she tries, he/she can’t always overcome the intense, overwhelming fear and anxiety. Please use trust, connection, and love to parent.
I don’t think I would have half the issues I had if it weren’t for the abuse I suffered. 😔
Stay tuned! I hope to get more posts written.
