What Healing My Inner Child Has Taught Me

by Oct 13, 2021

Reckoning with your childhood memories.

Everyone has favorite memories from their childhood that they cherish for life. These formative times in our lives are often looked back on with nostalgia, through rose colored glasses. But what is really behind the looking glass and those memories? What were the motives of our parents then and how do their choices affect our lives today?

That’s what I was trying to get to the bottom of last weekend when I took part in an “Embracing your inner child” workshop. I wanted to find out what my eight-year-old self would have to say to current-day me. What I found was incredibly insightful, yet hard to come to terms with. 

This episode of the Becoming Kings podcast is filled with important questions. How do our childhood memories manifest in our adult lives? What coping mechanisms did I unknowingly create to feel safe? And how can I reckon with these memories and use them to heal untreated wounds?
