Healing Your Inner Child Class
Everyone has an inner child.
You might see this inner child as a direct representation of yourself in your early years, a patchwork collection of the development stages you have passed through, or a symbol of youthful dreams and playfulness.
An awareness of your inner child can help you think back to lighter, carefree years, being in touch with the joys of childhood can be an excellent way of dealing with challenging times.”
Not everyone associates childhood with playfulness and fun, unfortunately if you experienced neglect, trauma or other emotional pain, your inner child might seem small, vulnerable, and in need of protection. You may have buried this pain deep to hide it and protect yourself — both your present self and the child you once were.
Hiding pain does not heal it, it just hides it away. It can often surface in your adult life, showing up as distress in personal relationships, co- worker relationships and perhaps difficulty meeting your own needs. People pleasing is also a tell tell sign. Working to heal your inner child can help you address some of these issues.
