Resolving Abandonment and Rejection


Do you describe yourself as someone who is a perfectionist, or avoids conflict or a people pleaser?
Do you feel it’s often disappointing to put your trust in others?
Do you find yourself in conflictual relationships or conversely, anti-social or numb?

Abandonment isn’t just due to someone physically leaving, it’s also instigated by a deep lack of attunement to you early on. You’re built to be resilient, but feeling unseen and unheard while dealing with complex scenarios often creates an abandonment wound.
