Healing Childhood Wounds

I wanted to take a break from the Bridgerton reviews to discuss what I feel is an important topic, childhood wounds. I don’t believe this topic is trending but it needs to be. In one way or the other, we all have suffered childhood trauma and wounds. For some, it may be more severe than others. Unhealed childhood wounds can be detrimental to adulthood and cause unhealthy coping mechanisms or addictions that can not only hurt ourselves but others. For example, a childhood wound could be not receiving love from a mother figure. If dealing with a childhood wound in regards to lack of motherly love, that could heavily affect romantic and platonic relationships, because if you didn’t have that primary example of how to love from a mother or even a parent, how could you properly give love to others? Or, it could be you don’t feel worthy of being loved properly because your parent made you feel unworthy of it. If you have that type of childhood wound I just want to give you a big virtual hug because that must have been rough. You are worthy of healthy love and should enjoy giving that love in return without barriers or doubts. I want to send extra love to you if you had that experience. So many people had to experience that and to accept it as normal way of life. It has been proven that childhood mother wounds originated from a mother experiencing a similar deep wound from their mother and in return, has been passed down to her own children. Healing a childhood wound can be just as difficult as when you first experienced it but nonetheless is should be dealt with and healed so you can give and receive the love that you deserve. My main suggestion is seeking help from a mental health professional. A mental health professional can assist you in sorting your feelings and delving deep into your trauma to eventually heal those wounds. My next suggestion is to do some deep self- reflection and journaling your thoughts and feelings. Loving yourself wholeheartedly is another way to heal your childhood wounds as well as forgiving your mother for what was passed down to you. We are human, full of error and we all need forgiveness without conditions. Finally, develop self-awareness, really pay attention to your triggers and possible addictions and make short-term goals to remedy and change them. You can do this, I have faith in you. You are more than deserving to experience and receive healthy love by healing those childhood wounds. Peace, love and light while you go through your healing journey, I am proud of you for taking the first step!
