Our expert says:
Its a sadly common problem that people, for various reasons, choose to obsess about their past rather than enjoying their present and working towards an improved future.
We cannot change anything that happened in the past, but are free to change how we choose to feel about whatever did happen in the past.
So, you were treated without due care and loving as a child - that's sad, but need not change uyour present. Your mother, it seems, was inadequate, but we can form bad habits of thought, assumptions and behaviour during such periods, and carry them with us into the future, like an ugly tattoo, which is more unfortunate, but luckily can be changed.
See a counsellor / psychotherapist using a modern method like CBT ( COgnitive-Behavious Therapy ) which is specially designed to halp change such bad habits of thought and behaviour, and to enable you to enjoy now and the future, far more easily.
