You have always been shy, naive, and isolated, making you an easy target for abusers who are manipulative and controlling. You are hyper-tuned to negative energies, emotions, and people in hopes of controlling your environment and keeping down the conflict.
Your dysfunctional upbringing (not being able to express yourself, being made to feel ashamed of yourself, and the abuse) contributed to your low self-esteem and codependent way of living—a lifestyle that deprived you of autonomy. Over the next 20, 30, 40 years this lifestyle was maintained by your maladaptive behaviors within dysfunctional relationships on the job, in friendships, and in intimate relationships.
You've tried counseling, prayer, changing your hair, changing jobs, changing your address, and even changing men a few times but nothing seemed to fill the emptiness inside. You want the cycle to stop but can't figure it out. Do worry I got you. I assume you're ready to change, grow, and elevate your life and move from living a life by default that disregards your own needs, has a pattern of problematic relationships, and lacks validation and authentic connection. You're in the right place.
