The Scared Trapped Child Inside


If you were abused or neglected as a child – IT WAS NOT YOUR FAULT.

Child InsideIf you continue living your life through the lens of pain, it will taint everything.

When you forgive yourself for whatever you’ve done in your past, or had done to you… you can work on forgiving others.

You don’t have to feel great love for the person who abused you, or even speak to them again.

But… you do need to come to terms with what happened to you.

If you don’t, the tendrils of neglect and despair will never release you.

You can choose your feelings.

The rough, raw, ugly feelings will rise up every so often, but as an adult, you can recognise them and release them.

Admit that the person you are now was moulded by the experiences of your past… and love every part of you.

As an adult, you are now responsible for putting together the jigsaw of your personality.

You can choose how much you let past experiences affect you.

You are no longer insignificant and abandoned.

You are a mighty force to be reckoned with.

But you have a fearful, scared, unsafe child trapped inside.

Father Teaches Son To Find Inner BalanceComfort that child. It was not that child’s fault.

Remind that child that as the adult, you will protect them now and that they can rely on you.

If you need help to recover and accept what has happened to you  – seek it.

And then … release…

It will improve your investing… but most importantly… it will improve your life.

You will fight a thousand small wars on your way to earning your freedom – and it will be worth it.

You will battle the small-minded… the belittlers… and the nay-sayers – and it will be worth it.

You will learn to reach for your own super-hero cape, and not expect someone else to rescue you – and it will be worth it.
