What is 'wrong' with me?!

Have you ever said those words to yourself?  Or maybe you said it out loud to someone else.  Did you happen to check out the list of characteristics listed above?  Here they are again....does this sound like you?  Struggles you have had?  Have you tried to change these things?  Worked harder, changed your looks, practiced affirmations, and maybe even sought counseling....but still felt like something was wrong, or just not getting better.  

Thoughtful look

What happened to me?


So by now, if you have read through some of the characteristics, you may still be confused.  You may say:

'but there was no alcohol (or drugs) used in my home.'  

Or, 'the drinking (or drug use) was not that bad, and no one got wasn't that bad.'  

Or, 'that is exactly how I have felt for so long and never heard of any of this!'

            SO NOW WHAT?!

There is hope in understanding

Not only is there hope in understanding, but there is also a way to address these issues!  How would that be?  If you didn't feel like something was wrong with you, you understood your life history better. You had a way to continue to improve your understanding of yourself and possibly, your relationships!  

IFS, Internal Family Systems (in case you missed it above, here is some information), is rising in popularity, and attention and is changing lives daily.
