“We are all born same, we are completely cute, innocent, sweet, and we need that reflection of ourselves as little human beings to live, …” – Anneke Lucas. Hello, I’m Bill, a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPCA) located in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It seems that life can sometimes take a bit of the cuteness, innocence, and sweetness away. It is important to remember that our need for belonging and attachment continues throughout life and is not outgrown. If anything, the need may grow to seemingly greater levels. When our needs are not met, the response may be one of experiencing emptiness in life and low self-esteem.
