When you experience life as a child, you have situations or experiences that start to build inside your mind/brain. You learn how to survive, speak or not speak based on what you have witnessed from the adults around surrounding you. They don't sit in front of you with a ruler explaining how to deal with situations in a classroom, because they live it.
When you are a child, you learn by visual and emotional observing. You observe, try and apply. If you see an adult afraid of an item, person/situation, you will learn from this. Your brain starts to store this information which then teaches you how to 'survive' and adapt in the world as an adult.
Every single person has and will continue to experience every type of emotion. Depending on how you have 'visually and emotionally' learnt as a child. This determines how you handle stress, anxiety and uncomfortable emotions in life. What starts to happen is you start to self destruct from what you have learnt without realizing this.
For example; if you have grown up around siblings who bullied you, you have stored this as a 'bad' experience. You have learnt that you are not special, something is wrong with you to you are ugly based on what you have experienced.
Destructive thinking is what every human experiences, but forget that they can change their thinking pattern.
