Breaking the Cycle: How to Overcome Childhood Trauma and Create a Healthy Relationship
Welcome to the world of love and relationships, as seen through the eyes of Rebecca Cooper Traynor, your trusty matchmaker from Match Me Canada.
Today, I want to delve into a topic often overlooked in discussions about love and dating: childhood trauma and how it can impact our romantic relationships.
As someone who has spent years helping singles find their perfect match, I have seen firsthand how childhood trauma can manifest in adult relationships. Whether it’s trust issues, difficulty with intimacy, or a tendency to attract emotionally unavailable partners, the effects of childhood trauma can be far-reaching and long-lasting.
So, how can you tell if childhood trauma is coming up for you in your relationship? There are a few signs to look out for. For example, if you feel anxious or on edge around your partner or have trouble opening up and sharing your feelings, these may be indicators that something from your past is impacting your present.
But, don’t worry, there is hope! As a renowned couples therapist, Harville Hendrix says in his book, “Keeping the love you find,” “Couples can heal together. They can co-create a healing environment that fosters mutual growth and greater intimacy.”
Hendrix’s advice for healing together as a couple is to build trust and foster mutual understanding. This can be done by committing to open and honest communication, taking the time to understand each other’s needs and feelings, and actively working to create a safe and supportive environment for both partners.
At the end of the day, healing from childhood trauma is not easy. In a relationship, it takes a strong and dedicated partner to support you through the process.
