Why inner child work is important: our deepest beliefs and fears about ourselves, the world and others were developed as children. If you’re feeling any type of negative emotion (shame, guilt, fear) you’re most likely holding onto memories from the past.
I used to wait my life away and wasted years not being myself. Resisting everything I could be and could do. I’d go through the motions of a redundant routine hoping for a spark of motivation tomorrow, hoping that one day things would be different. Tomorrow always held the hope that I’d feel good enough to be myself, to take action, to put myself out there. I’d create problems that I’d need to fix. Listing things about myself that made me not ready. Did you know that shitty mindset is actually just resistance?
Do you ever get that "what the hell am I doing with my life" feeling? Like maybe you realize all your decisions leading up to this point in your life were made to please someone else? Maybe you choose to travel the expected, predictable road that would keep you safe and taken care of?
