The Freak 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 a reject
🗝 I don’t belong
🗝 I am a freak
SYMPTOMS + PERPETUATING BEHAVIORS
Do you recognize these symptoms or behaviors that perpetuate the wound?
🌀 Feel like the black sheep of the family, never really fitting in anywhere, and longing for true belonging.
🌀 Carry heavy false belief that life is lonely, unkind or not made for people like me.
🌀 Suffer from severe self-doubt and/or self-hatred due to lack of loving recognition, by self and/or others, of my unique gifts.
🌀 Chronically feel unwelcomed and/or left out, as if my person is not wanted/valued.
🌀 Fail to create supportive structures to channel my gifts in highly profitable, valuable and impactful ways.
🌀 Unable to see my gifts and/or withhold them, as if they don’t matter to the world.
🌀 Wait for others to invite or include me, rather than initiate my own participation.
If you do recognize yourself in these archetypes, here are some practices to maturate and integrate that wounded child.
🌹 Cultivate a sacred environment at home and beyond to ground me to the natural rhythms of earth.
🌹 Join groups with common interests, then learn to engage within the rules of the group, while maintaining unique self-expression, knowing that true belonging is effortless.
🌹 Strengthen social skills of openness, curiosity, attunement, and reading the room.
