If you are an Adult Survivor of a Damaged Past (ASDP) you know these feelings very well. And, even though you thought as a child, “When I grow up, everything is going to be different,” you discover that you have carried your sadnesses, anxieties, people-pleasing perfectionism, and self-protective/self-destructive habits to work with you. If you started life in an unstable home where parents or caregivers were neglectful, overbearing, addicted, harshly critical and perfectionistic, narcissistic or in many, many other ways unreliable, you bring damaging beliefs about yourself, people, and the world into adulthood. Long after you’ve left your childhood home to begin a life of your own. You thought it was all in the past. It’s not.
