Have you ever felt like you revert to a child like state when you have been emotionally triggered in the present? When a person, place, or situation seemingly sends you back in time to feeling helpless, confused, trapped, or powerless? If so, this typically indicates there are unresolved childhood wounds causing a "reaction" in the present.
This book, Healing the Child Within, is an excellent resource for any adult child of an alcoholic, addict, or dysfunctional family unit. This book helps unpack how when trauma, pain, and wounds go unaddressed from childhood, deep pockets of emotional turmoil are created. Here's an excerpt from the book: "When this Child Within is not nurtured or allowed freedom of expression, a false or co-dependent self emerges. We begin to live our lives from a victim stance, and experience difficulties in resolving emotional traumas". Struggling with decision making or codependency is not something to be ashamed of; in fact, it's typically a sign of great survival strength. You survived, you endured your childhood/adolescence, now, it's time to learn how to let go of anything that is not moving you towards your goals. This is possible! If this sounds like something you'd like to explore in your own life, I'd love to journey with you towards healing and wholeness.
