A wounded child archetype is a set of traits and behaviours acquired in childhood from parental or cultural conditioning that falsely defined who you truly are.

False Identities to Release

🗝 I am a bother

🗝 It’s best if I’m gone

🗝 I am a burden


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

🌀  Stay small and mousy, so not to make noise, make waves or bother anyone.

🌀  Extraordinarily capable and self-reliant, rarely creating support systems that allow others to give to me, thus feeling alone and isolated (curse of self-sufficiency).

🌀  Feel obligated to jump in and rescue / fix everything that is wrong, unable not to.

🌀  Lack trust, unable to lean on others, fearing enormity my needs / desires.

🌀  Heard parents often argue loudly and/or violently about (lack of) money.

🌀  Rarely express most vulnerable self.

🌀  Live minimally, even depriving self, so not to burden spouse, parents, work, nature.
