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 not enough 💭

I am unlovable 💭

I am insufficient 💭


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

🌀  Rarely content because life is ruled by impossibly high standards of perfection.

🌀  Chronically over-give, over-do and over-compensate just to get the same success and/or validation as everyone else.

🌀  Organize life around duty and survival (eg. debt, clutter, barren home) rather than thriving (eg. beauty, joy, pleasure).

🌀  Imposter syndrome (fear / anxiety of being discovered as a fraud, freeze at key times).

🌀  Fear that if I shine too bright, I’ll be burnt at the stake or hacked to pieces again.

🌀  Chronically settle for less in relationships / situations (eg. dating losers or “out of my league” superstars who will leave me).

🌀  Believe that others get love, but I don’t or only if I’m the best at everything.
