Unhealed Past Wounds and Their Impact on Relationships

Unresolved past wounds can have a detrimental effect on relationships. These wounds might be from childhood trauma, loss, or other hardships. If the wounds are left to fester, they can manifest in destructive behavior that can lead to a breakdown of trust and communication in relationships. In order to avoid this outcome, it is important to be aware of these unresolved issues and take steps to address them before they cause any further damage. Marriage counseling is one way to do just that—deal with these issues in a healthy and productive manner.

What Causes Unhealed Past Wounds?

Often times, unhealed past wounds are created through negative experiences such as traumatic events, abuse, neglect, abandonment or other forms of mistreatment. These experiences can leave individuals feeling helpless and powerless which can lead to feelings of depression and anxiety that will linger long after the event has passed. As time passes, these unresolved issues can begin to affect all aspects of their life including their relationships with others.

The Impact of Unhealed Past Wounds

Unhealed past wounds often manifest themselves in our current relationships in the form of poor communication skills, avoidance behaviors, distrusting attitudes or even aggression towards our loved ones. This type of behavior can erode trust within a relationship and create an environment where it is difficult for both parties involved to feel safe expressing themselves without fear of judgement or criticism.  It also prevents us from forming meaningful connections with others which leads us feeling lonely and isolated despite being among those we love most.
