Abandonment: The Act of Surrender

Abandon is an experience that everyone has gone through at one point of their life. By definition - abandon is to withdraw or surrender our claim to ourselves. Overwhelming life events, no matter how small or how big, create experiences where one might have to abandon self. Abandonment by self or by others people is one of the most painful feelings to experience in life. Traumatic or abusive life events cause humans to abandon themselves in order to live. The feeling of abandonment breeds self hate, resentment and a feeling of loss. Over time a fear to even face self develops.
With each occurrence, a piece of the soul is lost. The human is never the same again.
The loss produces a structural change within. The soul is the main driver of our human core and the essence of all of us. So the emptiness is internally experienced as abandonment. To become healthy, lay claim to your soul and no longer live in a state of abandon.
