At the beginning of our stories, we have limited control and depend on the adults in our lives. Our worldview and understanding of behaviors are influenced by our interactions throughout development. As we age, we strive to gain independence, establish life goals, and form the groundwork for our futures. Managing stress, problem-solving ways to endure, and experiencing unwanted moments of shame, regret, betrayal, and fear can be exhausting and, sometimes, create hope for the future.
