Replacing Self-Judgment with Self-Compassion
Our “Inner Child” represents that part of ourselves that is playful, creative and yet has also been hurt.
Instead of kicking ourselves when we’re down, we can learn to console ourselves with encouragement and love.
When we learn to listen to our Inner Child, care for them, and be kind in the process, we reparent ourselves in a way that leads to healing and a lot more fun.
Our "Inner Child" is that part of us that is creative, playful and has been hurt.
We've been socialized to ignore, deny, pathologize and devalue our Inner Child.
Building a better relationship with ourselves requires us to take care of our Inner Child.
When we attend to our Inner Child with love, compassion and boundaries, we heal.
Caring for our Inner Child does not mean giving them their every desire but listening is key.
Reparenting ourselves with kindness helps us to better integrate into adulthood.
