Many of us grew up being shamed for wanting a connection and in our parent's twisted reality, this was seen as a bad or selfish desire.
All children deserve a connection and those who did not receive attention now struggle with trust issues, abandonment and attachment traumas.
If your parents understood the power of attention, you would not crave connection today, at least not in a codependent kind of way.
Many of us who crave connections in a codependent kind of way have been starved of affection, validation and healthy nurturing, and that is not our fault.
Be brave enough to see the truth and do all you can to give yourself all the love, affection and connection you always deserved.
You are enough!
