Your Say

Why are the beginning years of our life so defining over the majority of our life ? Why do they help or hinder us so much ? Can understanding lead to behavior change or do we just act out for the rest of our lives.

Dear Grace,

Assuming your question is not rhetorical.....

"The beginning years of our lives" are when we're formed, from whatever materials are at hand. If those materials are non-nourishing, distortions sometimes occur.

Understanding is painful, and behavior change is a willful act. And you have the rest of your life to practice.
