What can we do as adults to rectify childhood damages? For instance, When as an adult one feels lonely, anxious,etc ... at many occasions, I believe there is a good chance that those feelings are rooted in the person's childhood. Once it is diagnosed what the feelings come from originally, how can it be dealt with?

  • $\begingroup$ Hi Maryam. Thanks for the question! On CS we tend to not answer "self-help" questions, for a series of reasons. Is there any way you could rephrase this more generally, with some examples from other people included? Thanks again! $\endgroup$ – mflo-ByeSE Jun 16 '17 at 18:09
  • $\begingroup$ Hi @mfloren. Thanks for the advice. I tried changing it. Is it still not acceptable because I see it is still on hold. $\endgroup$ – Maryam Jun 19 '17 at 1:33
  • $\begingroup$ I have voted to re-open this question as it is possible to answer. I will try to keep an eye on whether this gets re-opened, and if it does I will provide an answer within the group accepted and professional guidelines which hopefully will help. $\endgroup$ – Chris Rogers Jun 19 '17 at 14:46
  • $\begingroup$ Of course! Once a question is put on hold it has to be "re-opened": with enough votes, it should be taken off of hold. I'm also voting to re-open. $\endgroup$ – mflo-ByeSE Jun 19 '17 at 15:26

    $\begingroup$ Not sure if my question is ever going to be active again, I found this cogsci.stackexchange.com/questions/9661/…. It might help people who were interested in the answer. $\endgroup$ – Maryam Jun 21 '17 at 2:17
