Five signs that you need to heal your inner child
Healing the inner child starts when we decide to change patterns and behaviors that no longer serve us. This healing can last forever but the benefits are visible almost immediately. It’s the best gift we can give to ourselves… and you deserve to give yourself this gift. If
- You have difficulties accepting critics
- You’re always worried about the present and the future, about what it is now and what it could be
- You’re always imagining the worst-case scenario
- Every partner you find turns out to be the same as the previous one and your partnership turns out to have the same challenges as the previous one
- You are still trying to please your parents
These are just some of the signs that you need to work on your inner child’s acceptance, healing, and love. Your inner child might be telling you certain beliefs but remind yourself those don’t have to be true. You have the right to do whatever pleases you and you have the right not to please other people in order to get the love you want. Why do we please others and fulfill others’ wishes rather than ours?
You’re pleasing others because you care too much about what others think about you and not because you love others thoroughly. Usually, very deeply you despise them because “they make you do something for them” and then you expect love in return.
Pleasing others doesn’t make you a better person, it makes you a person who isn’t true to yourself. You believe that by giving you will deserve love and acceptance and that makes you a better person, but it’s quite the opposite. You’re a better person only if you are true to yourself. If you live by your own truth. Then, naturally, you are true to others, authentic, and lovable.
You should remember that if you take up space, you won’t be judged and shamed by people who love you. You will be supported and respected for your authenticity.
In order to give to others, you have to give it yourself first. By yourself, it means your inner child. This child is deeply wounded and you keep neglecting it.
You can’t truly love and accept anyone if you didn’t first do it with yourself.
