“Children learn what they live and that was their life.”
The struggle is real. Children absolutely learn what they see everyday, and if what they see everyday is mistreatment, abuse, chaos, etc. how can we expect them to learn anything other than the world is dangerous, this goes on everywhere, and I must have done something to deserve this.
Now take those lessons and try to live as an adult.
Not so easy, is it? Luckily, despite what we learned as children, we did not deserve that treatment, and it does not have to be the story of our entire lives.
