Overcoming Abandonment in Relationship

Thriving Relationships with Jessica Hartley

Host: Jessica Hartley

Topic: Overcoming Abandonment

Guest: Karina Romeo

Santa Clarita Relationship coach Jessica Hartley was live on-air this week on her weekly radio show to talk about what it looks like in a relationship when someone is triggered by past abandonment, and how to overcome that.

The trauma people experience from abandonment could potentially hold them back in relationships and in life, says Jessica. Many people who have experienced abandonment will fall into the victim role in relationships.

Abandonment can come in different forms. Some people suffer from abandonment issues because a relationship ends and there is no closer. Some people were abandoned physically or emotionally as a child.

Jessica says experiences like that can be triggered later in life and people can often react by feeling not good enough, rejected and can feel the hurt all over again. She encourages everyone to use the pain they are feeling in a relationship that may have been triggered from past abandonment as a tool towards growth.

Jessica talks about being emotionally abandoned in childhood by an alcoholic parent, and Karina talks about being physically abandoned by her son’s father very suddenly. Both women discuss the wound they had from these experiences and Jessica gives listeners some tips on how to continually heal.
