Trauma bonding

Trauma bonding is the reason people choose abusive partners time and time again.

Trauma bonding is also known as Stockholm syndrome, something that is mentioned a lot when someone has been abducted.

Trauma bonding is something that starts in a person’s childhood, if they have suffered abuse or neglect.

If you are someone who keeps choosing emotionally unavailable partners or abusive partners, then this is why.

  1. Thanks for the video Athina. Helps to put some pieces in perspective. I met a normal guy once and kept telling him we didn’t “fit”. I didn’t know why at the time and have recently had my suspicions, and now your video has confirmed it for me

    1. You very welcome lovely! Struggling to relate with healthy people is so common with those of us with traumatic and abusive childhoods. I really believe that this is the greatest obstacle in moving forward with a healty partnership. Even if there is an attraction, the personality doesn’t feel like it fits. That is how I felt initially with my husband..I kept going on dates with him (despite several anxious moments) and now I am used to the stability and comfort..It took time to push through the unfamiliar feelings but it is possible. I really wish the same for you. xx
