"Adulting brings its own challenges. But also, what you are experiencing today could be from unresolved childhood issues. Do you feel overwhelmed, distressed, anxious, and depressed? Do you notice that you function well in one area, but you fall apart behind closed doors? As a teenager, college student, Millenial, or Gen Z'er, you have the world ahead of you, but you've been wounded from broken relationships, abandonment, abuse and/or molestation. It's hard to be free from these challenges on your own, but it's not impossible with help. I am a firm believer if you can identify the root you can change the fruit. "
