I’ve come to believe through observing many people that no one gets out of childhood without some scars resulting from the perception that they were not loved the way they wanted to be loved by one or more significant people in their lives…or even from having been loved in ways that were actually quite destructive before they even knew what real love is. Unless one experiences the kind of love that comes only through Christ, she will continue to suffer additional wounds and to think of love as a needy child does.
