Still, this betrayal of trust was devastating. It not only damaged the child you were but also crippled the adult you’ve become. As a result of that childhood betrayal, you built a wall around that secret. When you did, you formed the belief that no one would ever listen to you or believe you.
This toxic belief is holding your adult life hostage. It’s become a dysfunctional part of your identity. It says: You’re an adult now. You’re so kind or helpful or giving or such a hard worker. You’re doing just fine all by yourself. You don’t need ANYONE, right?
Think back to your childhood. Remember the last time you tried to tell someone about the abuse, and they didn’t believe you? The rejection was crushing. That was the day you decided you were unlovable and unworthy of help. You decided to go it alone. Forever. I mean, who needs these people, right? Not you!
That childhood belief is preventing you from healing as an adult. Your brain is wired to keep you safe. It won’t allow you to be hurt like that again. Every time you try to change, that old belief pops up and stops you.
Don’t let it. The only way to heal is to reach out for support again and again and again. Each time you do, your brain will shift into “protection mode.” Ignore it. Keep seeking support.
Soon you’ll hear what you’ve been craving all your life. People will say: I hear you! I’m so sorry that happened to you! How can I help and support you? I believe you!
Silence is holding you hostage. Break free and connect with a therapist or a coach. Keep reaching out. Find a way to be heard. Tell your story to people who believe you.
