The formation of personality is an important part of the development and begins in childhood. Our sense of identity includes how we see our value, how we regulate our emotions, and how safe and confident we feel. This personality can be severely impaired as a result of parental psychological Abuse resulting in developmental trauma.
If you have childhood or mental health problems, communication problems, or psychological disorders that hinder personal/professional development, I strongly recommend that you seek professional help from a mental health professional. They have tools and materials to help you learn the beliefs/behaviors that worked for you in the past but did not serve you.
