How we were cared for shapes our nervous system and the subconscious part of our minds.
It is in this way that our childhood wounds are still able to influence our lives today.
If we were not cared for enough as children, we may look for someone today who is able to provide for us, even if, for example, they are unfaithful.
So why is that?
Because the unmet need is more important.
Healing those wounds is so important to move forward.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But there is hope. In identifying and healing these past wounds, you can unlock healthy relationships in your life today.
I'd love to invite you to check out the Head and Heart Community, a safe, trauma-informed space for those ready to heal. There is a new workshop every month, along with monthly Q&A sessions to help you get the support you need on your healing journey.

Do You Struggle with Trusting Yourself?
Hi there! I've created a free guide to help you Trust Yourself again (or maybe for the first time). This is not a replacement for therapy or working directly with a skilled practitioner, but it will give you support on your journey. Included are journaling prompts, education on how trauma impacts our connection with ourselves, and 5 steps to start trusting yourself more.
