SYMPTOMS + PERPETUATING BEHAVIORS
Do you recognize these symptoms or behaviors that perpetuate the wound?
🌀 Present self as having it all together and don’t need anything from anyone.
🌀 Be a know-it-all, constantly correcting others with unsolicited advice, closed off to new insights, lessons, or perspectives.
🌀 Uncomfortable in a room if not holding a position of power or importance (usually the leader, rarely the follower).
🌀 Often play the hero and make sure others know all my sacrifices and hard work.
🌀 Subtly invalidate others’ power by trumping them, being contrary, or relentlessly drilling holes in their knowing.
🌀 Hard time being vulnerable with others and rarely let people know what I need.
🌀 See power as my birthright, thus plowing over others, unaware of my impact.
False Identities to Release
🗝 I am helpless
🗝 I am hopeless
🗝 I am powerless
Maturation + Integration Practices
If you do recognize yourself in this identity matrix, here are some practices to maturate and integrate that wounded child.
🌹 Learn to acknowledge, appreciate and honor the contributions of others.
🌹 Express my doubts and knowledge gaps vulnerably and see the power of that transparency.
🌹 Champion and feed power to others without losing own power, knowing that power is not finite.
Viewed through sacred lenses, my wounds become my greatest gift.
