Hi everyone,

There was incest with me when I was young, but I do not remember the exact age. Do you think this can cause self-loathing,and self destruction? I would like to hear opinions from as many as possible. I had many other issues growing up. One is lack of love and I am wondering if that could be the problem or both.

Thank you in advance.

Asa child abuse effects us in different ways. But I would have to say yes many times it causes us to self destruct until we learn to express our feelings about the abuse in a healthy way.

It seems like incest and self loathing and self destructive behavior all go hand in hand. I know all too well. I just want you to know that whatever happened it was not your fault and you deserve to have a healthy and happy life.

Thank you Gothic. I do know it wasn't my fault and I deserve to have a healthy and happy life, but I think the damage is sooo deep rooted in me it is so hard to change me. I have seen many therapists also.

I believe change is something that we can hope for. As long as we have hope we can change.

of course it can cause self loathing. you just have to learn to cope with it. there are several different ways to do that, DBT is one of them.
