Adult Children of Emotionally Immature and
"WHEN YOU GET TO A PLACE WHERE YOU UNDERSTAND THAT LOVE AND BELONGING, YOUR WORTHINESS, IS A BIRTHRIGHT, AND NOT SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO EARN, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE."
- BRENE BROWN
These days, emotional intelligence (EQ) is all the rage.
Some psychological experts claim that EQ is even more importance than intelligence (or IQ).
But some of our parents may not know about the importance of emotions simply because no one told them or asked them how they felt when they were young.
Because of that, they didn't teach you about the importance of emotions or ask you how you felt when you were younger.
Many times, our parents were not emotionally mature when they raised us, although physically, they were "all grown up."
So now, we may not be as emotionally intelligent or mature as we want to be, even though we are adults and "all grown up."
Hi, I'm Dr. Elena Kim, and I am a licensed mental health therapist.
If your parents were not emotionally, aware, intelligent, or mature while you were growing up and they raised you based on societal expectations rather than what's right for YOU, perhaps you struggle with self-doubt, insecurity, and imposter syndrome despite being the smartest person in the room.
You could feel lost, like your life has no direction.
You may have extreme grief, sadness, and depression because you just couldn't be a normal kid growing up.
Your parents' emotions came first, rather than yours, and you had to take care of them, instead of the other way around.
But there is hope.
I want you to know that you can survive an "unhappy childhood" or "bad parenting."
You can learn how to take care of your emotional health, thrive, and become the person you were meant to be on this earth.
