I didn't know how to cope with moving so much losing people in my life. "Children might experience emotional extremes due to a move, such as becoming clingy, crying extensively, yelling, arguing and rebelling." http://everydaylife.globalpost.com/military-moves-affect-children-11359.html
By the time I was 8 I moved 7 different times.
As an adult I struggle with making relationships when it comes to friends, and mostly romantic relationships. This giving me a since of an overwhelming feeling of loneliness.
Abandoment as a child
Im motivated to fix this because deep down all I want is to feel like i'm loved.
As an adult when Im rejected from people I tend to do what I know best and that's avoid relationships. When I do get the feeling of wanting to be in relationships I become clingy because when I was a child the fear of losing friends and family was always there. This then pushes people away and Im right back to where I was. Today I struggle with Anxiety, depression, insecurity, and low self esteem. I learned all of this as a child.
The child may develop a detached way of relating to the world, having given up on forming lasting relationships. He may act out, become involved with drugs or alcohol as a way of coping, engage in sexual promiscuity or other self-destructive behaviors, or become severely or chronically depressed." http://www.examiner.com/article/military-children-suffer-psychological-effects-of-frequent-relocation
I was bullied being the new kid in school and being new to the area we moved making me feel attached even more from trying to make healthy relationships. I never fought but I was put down a lot. "Kids who move to a new location may also get into fights with other children or may experience bullying because they are the newest children in school or in a particular neighborhood"
My father being overseas and in the field also played a big role Being the only male with two sisters my father figure was not around. "Very young children may exhibit separation anxiety, temper tantrums, and changes in eating habits." www.ptsd.va.gov/professional/pages/pro_deployment_stress_children.asp
I went to 5 different elementary schools where I struggled with school.School-age children may experience a decline in academic performance. http://www.ptsd.va.gov/professional/pages/pro_deployment_stress_children.asp
The friends I made I constantly had to leave behind. I remember wishing my family would leave me behind so that the feeling of loosing them wouldn't occur anymore.
