Imprinting, theory of attachment and trauma bonding in Psychology

Imprinting
In psychology and ethology, imprinting is any kind of phase-sensitive learning (learning occurring at a particular age or a particular life stage) that is rapid and apparently independent of the consequences of behaviour. It was first used to describe situations in which an animal or person learns the characteristics of some stimulus, which is therefore said to be "imprinted" onto the subject. Imprinting is hypothesized to have a critical period.

The neurotransmitters

The neurotransmitters
Adrenaline: it's a fight or flight neurotransmitter. Produced in stressful or exciting situations. Leads to a physical boost and heightened awareness.

Dopamin: it's a pleasure neurotransmitter. Feelings of addiction too, movement and motivation. People repeat behaviours that lead to dopamin release.

Serotonin: mood neurotransmitter. Contributes to well-being and happiness, helps sleep cycles and digestive system regulation. Affected by exercise and light exposure.

Today I choose to be happy

"Today, I choose to be happy. I choose to let go. I choose to be myself. To love myself. To cherish myself. Today, I choose to let go of the people whose company is toxic to my peace of mind. Today, I choose to be free. I choose to liberate my soul from the aches it's been through. Today I choose to stay away from closed doors. I choose not to craft a wall around my heart. I choose to decorate it with the lessons I've learned. I choose to paint it with respect and confidence. Today, I choose to forgive myself. For being too much of myself. For allowing myself to hurt myself.
