I can see clearly!!!
For many years I was in an abusive relationship, I finally realized the reason was because I was use to being treated like that from my mother. I have a lot of the dependency problems. Sex with strangers, drugs, internet, any and everyway I can get out of dealing with what is reality. I now have a daughter who is recently experiencing abandonment issues, my whole reason in coming to this site. As I am reading, I am learning more about myself and am asking myself the same question, what can I do to keep my daughter from feeling like she is not good enough? I live with shame and guilt everyday and have no absolute idea why. I am a good person, I have accomplished a lot out of life. I just want to be happy. I feel like nothing is ever good enough and I am about to be 30. I have a career, a degree, a home, and still feel like it is not good enough. I do not want my daughter to carry this weight of shame around for the rest of her life like I have.
