Abandonment is THE primal human emotion.
And no one explains this truism more eloquently than psychotherapist and bestselling author, Susan Anderson, whose life work has been to explore abandonment’s depths.
Her new book, The Abandonment Recovery Workbook is for everyone, those in and outside the thick of abandonment grief.
In this fantastic, information-loaded interview with Anderson, we learn WHY abandonment issues inevitably arise. WHY it is we leave relationships that are destructive emotionally only to find ourselves in another. HOW we can not play puppet to our own primal neurology.
The importance of answering such BIG questions is inadvertently stressed when we learn there are consequences to not dealing with our feelings: We leave the feelings behind and numb around the area of love and connection. Therefore, the only emotion we can feel is insecurity and rejection.
