Childhood memory

Postby pasc345 » Mon Feb 02, 2015 2:05 am

I have found out through introspection that when I am abandoned or rejected I feel that I am a bad person. This feeling is so strong that I cannot overcome it. I read that when you are hurt in the present, it reveals a deeper and more ancient wound (often that of childhood).
I think that my feeling of being a bad person comes from my grand-father's death. I read that children often think that they are a bad person when someone they love dies. I was 6 when my grand-father died.
I think that today when I am hurt in this way, it goes back to that wound.
How can I treat it?

Therapy is the best way to address it. Find yourself a therapist.

Do you often think of your grandfather? Why do you think that this loss is that determining?
