...scars of shame & unworthiness

Updated: Feb 15



Besides physical needs, children require all kinds of psychological needs (affection, attention, praise, acceptance, belonging, safety, approval and discipline from our parents/ community/environment) to grow into emotionally secure adults.

Consciously/unconsciously the parents/family/community/environment pass their judgments, lack, anger, fear, insecurity and resentment onto little ones they raise.


On facing neglect of these emotional needs, a child’s instinct responds by believing –

'I am not worthy' or

'I am not good enough' or

'This is because of me'.


The inner-child's psyche conceals shame, unworthiness, lack, and insecurity for not being good enough to people that matter most.

The innocent heart is ashamed about being their genuine self!


This passed on toxic baggage was never his/her to carry...it was projected & enforced emotionally !


The above act by the EXTERNAL sets the stage for feelings of unworthiness later in our adult life.

The inner-child within is hurting deep down because of others' inability to give him/her the emotional support.


The only one capable of healing these suppressed childhood wounds is adult SELF i.e. you.


On the arousal of these extreme emotions, all we have to do is - ‘be present’ with the energy and acknowledge the inner-child's feeling with genuine compassion.

After validating the inner-child’s grief we need to give him/her love and attention he/she is yearning.

🤗


There is no higher power than acceptance and unconditional love for what IS…
