The Lost Child


I've been reading about the roles people play in an alcoholic family and I can identify as The Lost Child. I have memories of being very quiet, almost invisible, trying to cause as little problems as possible. I would daydream a lot. That was an escape from reality.

Does anyone have any advice or suggestions on how to heal from this role.

Hi. Iím writing a few months after your post. I hope you see it. Currently Iím reading a book called The Power Of Attachment. One take-away for those of us who have avoidant attachment traits (and it seems to me the lost child is an avoidant-type role) is to go toward people, reach out when we feel like withdrawing. The book contains specific examples of how to do this which is helpful.
