A Wounded Child Archetype is a set of thoughts, traits and behaviours imprinted in childhood (by unconscious parental or cultural conditioning) that falsely defined you.

False Identities to Release

I am a mess 💭

I can’t win 💭

I am a failure 💭


Do you recognize these symptoms or behaviors that perpetuate the wound?

🌀  Always say yes and take on more than I can handle, stressing self to the max.

🌀  Hide or fall off the face of the earth when I start to notice that I can’t meet all my promises.

🌀  Chronically procrastinate, poor follow-through (eg. missed deadlines, late fees).

🌀  Often feel guilty for not keeping my word and disappointing others (eg. forgetful, running late, disorganized, no show).

🌀  Wait until it’s too late to communicate my needs for support or clarity.

🌀  Try and try, work harder and harder and can never seem to get ahead.

🌀  Rarely take time to celebrate my accomplishments.
