“Many of us were brought up by dysfunctional parents who hated themselves, who were taught to hate themselves so they (often unknowingly) pass it on to others around them. Finding yourself on the receiving end? See it as a gift for you to seek strength and supports to help keep it out. Lateral violence is an energy. You decide to let it in, things can’t come into you without your consent” ~ Tasha Beeds
