Hi, I have been doing a lot of work on my inner child and I have come to a realization I wanted to bring to coaching. I realize now that for most of my childhood I felt very out of control and a victim to my circumstances. I can see how that made sense given the fact I didn’t have the awareness to accept that I had choices on how to respond to my Cs. As I am getting older, I realized that now that I have some choices in my life, the feeling of empowerment almost brings me anger. Like now that I am in control I want to use that to punish the people who were cruel to me as a child. I thought the feeling of empowerment would make me feel free but its almost like this feeling makes me want to use it to make them “feel as badly and as helpless as I did”. Can you help me pick this apart a bit?
