How do you deal with abandonment issues?

I was abandoned a s a child.

Each person's situation is very unique. I suggest you see a therapist for one-on-one therapy and also find an abandonment support group in your area. If you can't find one where you live, they have them online. Forgiveness is a strong factor in recovery. A group will help you heal so the issues don't affect your future relationships.

The one thing you should do is look into going to a counselor. Having someone to talk to works wonders. Also, get a journal and write. You have to attack it head on. The more you talk about it the better you will start to feel.

Issues like abandonment are difficult to deal with on your own. Be kind and gentle to yourself. Maybe try self help books. If that doesn't work, a good therapist will be able to guide you through your issues.

The best way to deal with abandonment issues is not to be alone. Plus, there is something about not abandoning others that will help you cope with your own abandonment issues. Also, realizing that you are not the reason the person abandoned you in the first place, helps.
