Relationships are complicated. We hear that all the time. And the truth behind why we are attracted to the people we are attracted to can also be complicated because the trauma inside of us can easily be recreated in our relationships.
Trauma can ignite a fire inside of you that makes you feel an attraction similar to a moth to a flame.
What I mean by this is during our childhood we develop wounds, or traumas, based on how our parents treated us.
