Research indicates that our ability to establish and maintain love relationships is profoundly affected by our
childhood experiences and the development of self-love.
In some families, children are given positive feedback
and are often told verbally that they are important and
that they are loved, while in others the expression of
love is more subtle or absent altogether.
When you were
growing up, did you receive positive feedback?
you verbally told that you were loved?
How were you
shown that you were loved?
Do you think these early
childhood experiences have had an impact on your self-esteem? On how you show love today? Explain.
