Most people hate to admit that their childhood affected how they behave in relationships today. They will admit that the time they were cheated on affected them. Or that their first heart break affected them. They can probably tell you something they learned from every past breakup, and how it has shaped the way they behave in relationships today, and even the partners they seek out. Why is that? Because it’s the past. And, whether you like it or not, you don’t go through life unscathed by your past experiences. Your childhood is a part of your past too. And, although it may not be as apparent how it affects your love life as an adult, it has a huge impact.
