We all come from different backgrounds. Some of us grew up in a loving
and encouraging family, and some of us didn't. We've probably all had
some kind of relationship in our lives that has left us feeling hurt.
You can't control your outside circumstances. I wish we could. What you
can control is your own choices. It can be hard to love when you feel
broken. If you don't come to any relationship (romantic, friendship,
family) whole, you end up (1) asking others to fill in the broken pieces
or (2) shutting them out completely. You first have to love yourself.
Then, you can offer relationships your strengths rather than looking to
them to fix your weaknesses. We all have the power to make this decision
no matter what hand life has dealt us.
