Hi everyone, I wonder what you can say, with compassion and wisdom, about the following:
I know someone who was physically abused as a child. She grew up and had a lot of rage and grief about it, but did not resolve, admit or face the issue. Then she had children and treated them with the same emotional patterns, and took out her rage on them, psychologically, but thankfully, not the physical abuse. She didn't tell her children about her own childhood abuse until they were adults. Her children now have a sense of resentment and rage, fear and sense of unsafety and unworthiness too that they are dealing with. How would you advise the adult children how to deal with it in a loving manner?
Thanks, peace, Rachel
