When I became a mother, it was then that I knew I had a TON of healing to do. I was confused, fearful + reactive.
I had just begun inner child work, but here I faced a dilemma- as I also had an ACTUAL child to care for. It was challenging. VERY challenging. I was triggered, unsure on boundaries, and worried I would pass on all the pain I carried. The pendulum would swing so hard from being over bearing + controlling one day, to letting her run the show the next. We were all miserable. My worst fears were coming true.
Today I can tell you I am not that mother anymore. I’ve intentionally worked at and successfully been able to honor + care for my own wounds and inner child, while also caring for my actual babies. My awareness has grown; I no longer am triggered the way I use to be. I no longer unload my baggage of fears + worries + hurts onto them. I no longer spend days uncertain of boundaries + questioning everything. I’m not a perfect mother, but I am a healing one.
I am creating a journaling resource for you that will get you to this point in your parenting, if you’re ready. It’s a tool you will use everyday that will expand your awareness, allow you to reflect on triggers, practice boundaries, and rebuild the care + safety your inner child needs, while also showing up for your actual child. It guides you to heal so your babies don’t have to. It helps you transform your pain so that you can break the cycle for good.
If you want it, be sure to sign up through the link in my bio. I’m adding the finishing touches this weekend 💫
