5 Things Your Wounded Inner Child NEEDS To Hear RIGHT NOW
hi psych2goers have you ever paid attention to

your

inner

voice you know that little voice inside of you that reminds you of

your

younger self no matter how old you are you carry a younger version of

your

self within you which is also known as

your

inner

child

your

inner

child

is an extremely important and large part of who you are how you deal with emotions and

your

own programming and beliefs as an adult the

things

that have affected you as a

child

may manifest themselves in adulthood if you were taught that love was something to be earned then you may stay in an unhealthy relationship or environment as an adult because you don't believe that you deserve healthy and nurturing love so to help you heal from some of the wounds you may have had as a

child

here are five

things

your

inner

child

needs

to

hear

right

now number one it's okay to have feelings and to express them as a

child

you may not have had authority figures that placed importance on

your

emotions and feelings the only thing that may have mattered was that you were fed clothed and had a roof over

your

head therefore any kind of honest emotional display may have been seen as a challenge to their rule which could result in getting

your

feelings hurt growing up in this kind of environment can create a belief that

your

emotions are irrelevant that they should not be expressed and that it will only inspire anger in others this cycle of shame may continue into adulthood where you become unable to express

your

own...
5 things your wounded inner child needs to hear right now
anger and sadness and fear of being ridiculed for this reason it's important you now create a safe space for

your

self where you can express acknowledge and accept how you feel 2. you are safe did you move around a lot as a kid if so you may have experienced a lot of anxiety and worry about going to new places or about not knowing when or why you were moving even if you were around

your

family or guardians you may have still felt alone unsafe and unprotected because of the uncertainty of where you were going to stay while not all of

your

issues regarding safety may come from the physical the main focus is that

your

inner

child

needs

to feel safe having a place that won't change or where you have a say on where you're going to go provide stability and a sense of security sometimes because of the lack of defense from the outside you may find

your

self needing to find safety in routines hobbies health practices and

your

own emotions when you tell

your

self that you're safe you're also reminding

your

self that you're worthy of protection number three it's not

your

fault when other people are in a bad mood

child

ren don't really have the cognitive ability to self-regulate or be aware of emotional boundaries when something happens to you as a

child

you may internalize it so if someone especially any authority figure was mean or lashed out you may have believed that it was

your

fault for being bad this belief is harmful because it leads to a type of...
5 things your wounded inner child needs to hear right now
thinking that other people's emotions are

your

responsibility and that you must tread lightly around them because of it and when you form a habit of walking on eggshells around people's feelings it leads to people-pleasing tendencies you go along to get along because you're afraid to be known as someone who hurts people's feelings but it can also lead to a lack of identity and sense of self as you heal

your

inner

child

learning about emotional boundaries and when responsibility starts and ends is a great tool for self-confidence and self-validation number four i

hear

you and i see you did you feel invisible as a

child

if

your

child

hood involved conditional love emotional manipulation tactics and a disregard for the individual then you may have been taught that you must prove that you're worthy of love by performing in a certain way feeling invisible to the people who love you and who are supposed to love you can be

hear

tbreaking especially when you were a

child

since you may not understand why it's happening and believe that it's because there's something wrong with you so to heal from feeling unseen and un

hear

d you must acknowledge and accept how certain memories affected and still affect you and learn to value

your

own opinions and thoughts and be more encouraging to

your

younger self and number five i love you did

your

loved ones tell you that they loved you when you were young you might have never

hear

d that phrase directed at you before as...
5 things your wounded inner child needs to hear right now
a

child

or you might have but it came with some condition or favor perhaps they'd say

things

like you know i love you

right

so can you please go and do this for me not having been told that you're loved unconditionally by

your

guardians or parents or having been raised in an environment where emotions were seen as weakness can make any

child

feel like they aren't lovable or worthy of love this is why it's important to show that

inner

child

love and to say it out loud it may might it probably will feel uncomfortable and silly at first it may seem like you're lying to

your

self at first but over time you may start to feel a little more comfortable about it and become more okay with the concept of loving

your

self unconditionally

your

inner

child

needs

and deserves to be reminded of

your
