Whats your baggage?


"Baggage" is just not a term we use when describing the item we use to pack our clothes in when we want to travel.
"Baggage" is also known for an item as a symbol of how much "stuff" we are carrying around with us that may impact interpersonal relationships.
Baggage can include but not be limited to:
-Unhealthy relationships in the past
- Trust issues
- Exposure to violence including DV
- Lack of exposure to healthy relationships
- Poor self esteem aka confidence
- Any level of Trauma
Often times when two people meet, they are unaware of the amount of baggage the posses as it is "repressed" or pushed down into their memory because they want to think about or process it.
Hence, people also refuse to open that baggage and instead they will stuff it in a closet or in the garage. However when something happens in a relationship that triggers that bag to open (unconsciously), they may "over react." If this continues to occur, it will cause discord in their relationship that may result in yet another trauma or unhealthy relationship and will be added to their self fulfilling prophecy of:
-I am not the relationship type
-I'm cool I can be single
-I can't trust anyone
-All of them are the same
If this sounds very familiar, please stay tuned! I will be revealing more information about the "baggage" concept.
