When one has suffered or is suffering from unhealed trauma, it can be easy to get ourselves into unhealthy relationship patterns. If you’re someone who gets stuck in unhealthy or toxic relationship dating patterns, or if you’re finding you’re codependent in relationships or struggle with codependency, it may have something to do with trauma bonding.
