Are you suffering from something happened in your childhood? Do you have wounds that you still carry since you were a child? Everyone has a past; some might had great past, and some might had not so good one. Do you wish that you can just erase the past and pretend that nothing ever happened? But, you know, memories are not meant to be forgotten. You just need to move on from the past and take necessary actions to live a happier life.
In my line of work, I find people, even in their 40s and 50s, who still carry wounds from their past. Most of them are wounds associated with parents and family issues – dysfunctional family, dominant father or mother, abusive behaviors, quarrels between parents, nasty words, words and actions “unconsciously said and done”, and also habits and characters which shape the perspective and characters of their children.
Something which happened in the past should stay in the past, and not in the present. Let them just be memories that we all can learn from.
Yes, sometimes there are wounds that are a little hard to get rid of. But we must know that wounds are meant to be healed and not to be ignored, because if you keep it inside for too long, it may affect your relationships, health, finance, etc. The point is; are you ready to heal your wounds? And what does it take to heal it and make you feel better about it?
Here are ways you can do to heal your inner child wound. Let’s see how simple it actually is.
1. Aware and accept
First of all, you need to be aware that you still carry wounds from your childhood. Think about it, how can you heal your wounds if you are not aware that they’re there within you? Then, accept that “Yes, I have this wound that I want to heal” and we can move to the next step.
2. Face it
What better way to heal it other than facing it? You need to first face it in order to heal it. You can’t run away from it any longer. What has haunted you all this time? Stop avoiding it and start facing it.
You don’t have to be physically present with the persons who have hurt you in the past to be able to forgive them. You just need to make peace within yourself and energetically talk to them and forgive everything they’ve done to you. But if you think you need to meet those persons face to face, contact them if that’s still possible. I know that it is not that easy to forgive people who have hurt us, but this is an important step to heal you from all your wounds.
4. Embrace your inner child
Why so serious? Embrace your inner child as often as you need. It may not help all your problems but it keeps you sane and sometimes it leaves you feeling happier and more free after embracing your inner child. You would feel sooo much lighter and energized!
5. Create new memories
We cannot change the past, but we sure can take some actions to create better memories for today and tomorrow, right?! Create new happy memories that have anything to do with your inner child. Visit, talk and spend time with your parents. Understand that they too were young, immature and vulnerable. Mend the broken heart by doing what you can do today. Let the new memories make you feel better.
Meditation offers you benefits that you can’t even imagine. It will make you feel calmer, happier and when the time is right, it can help you to let go all the things that are no longer necessary in your life. It can even heal your from physical illness.
7. Talk to someone
You can’t keep it inside anymore. Talk to someone, let it out and find help if you need to. Be it your friends, family, strangers or even a professional therapist that can help you open up and feel comfortable to talk about it. Don’t ever hide it just to avoid it.
So, do you think you have wounds that you still carry from the past? What have you done to heal it? Or do you need help to heal it?
It’s okay to feel hurt and sad, we are all humans after all. What makes it not okay is you keep letting it destroy you; you keep it inside you for too long, and ruin all the chances you can get in life without you even knowing.
Realize that those things are not the true you to begin with. Those are just the things you see, watch, and learn from the people in your childhood. They are memories stored in your subconscious, from your present life and even your past lives. But the past does not equal your future. You have the NOW to change the course of your future.
And for the parents out there; if you have wounds from the past, please heal them and don’t inherit them to your children. Be more aware on how you treat and talk to your children. Be aware on how you talk, think and behave. You don’t want your children to feel the pain you’re feeling, right?
Now’s your chance to heal it, you can practice those steps and see how big the change they can bring to your life. And if you ever need someone to talk to, you can contact me here.
