The Disposable Child • Wounded Child Archetypes
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 worthless
🗝 I have no value
🗝 I am disposable
SYMPTOMS + PERPETUATING BEHAVIORS
Do you recognize these symptoms or behaviors that perpetuate the wound?
🌀 Give away my resources (time, energy, money, body, services, etc.) for free or for very little, as if they were disposable.
🌀 Chronically borrow against my own security and well being, thus perpetually feeling depleted, indebted and/or in survival mode.
🌀 Overstay miserable relationships and/or flee at the first sign of conflict.
🌀 Unable to receive, thus compulsively reciprocate any acts of kindness with an act of owing others back.
🌀 Chronically wait for the other shoe to drop.
🌀 Lack a healthy sense of entitlement in getting my needs / desires met.
🌀 Often beat self up, unsure how to nurture and meet my own needs / desires.
If you do recognize yourself in these archetypes, here are some practices to maturate and integrate that wounded child.
🌹 Explore activities / people that bring me joy / pleasure and make them a necessity and priority.
🌹 See and own the value of my unique gifts and express them in life enhancing ways.
🌹 Cultivate conflict resolution skills to better navigate relationships.
