I have tried to put my childhood issues behind me and forget it. However it has affected my life in a terrible way and I want healing to get to the root of the problem.

There is Hope.

I'm sorry to hear about your wounded heart and soul. I've suffered for many many years from the core wound of abandonment. He even had me believing that even God would abandon me, but he never did. I felt like God was far far away when I prayed to him, but in the book of Psalms it says he is at our rignt hand, now that's close. He has healed so much of my wound and is still doing so. I'm not afraid of abandonment anymore. I not scared that my boyfriend wants someone else.
It is a wonderful peace. I will also pray for you.

Just your desire to want to have healing and resolve from childhood of origins issues is such a big step in the right direction. Some people will not even begin to "look" in that direction because it's in the past and they cannot or will not open up that door. All I can share with you is that if I had NOT done the work of dealing with those issues and getting to the "root of the problem" I would not be able to sustain a marriage today, or any other kinds of significant relationship. But even more importantly I could not have a loving relationship with myself, which is vital to good mental and physical health.

Start out with small steps, as you did not get in this position over night and healing does not happen over night either. Try not to get frustrated and give up on your healing journey because it is the most important work you will ever do and the results are amazing! Seek out people with whom you trust and know what they are talking about (or at least have done the work themselves) so that you can have a knowledgeable guide as you travel this road (ie. counselor, spiritual guide, sponsor, mentor etc..)

I wish you the best of 'willingness' and will say a prayer for your healing journey! Good luck!
