My dad was kind of abusive growing up. Frequent verbals put downs and "light" beatings from time to time. I wonder if this is where my people pleasing started. I always felt I wasn't good enough for him growing up.
I definitely feel a lot of my issues are rooted in the abuse I experienced in my childhood, amongst other traumas and general shitty experiences. Of all the abuse I've found the verbal/emotional abuse has left the most damage and lingers the most. Especially when its from a parent.
