INNER CHILD


Hi, I have been doing a bunch of inner child and thought work and what I seem to be coming up with is that my inner child doesn’t let me truly want things in life because she is afraid it will be taken away from her like it was when I was younger. I went through a traumatic period in my youth (dad to prison, grandfather having a hear attack in front of me, and the list goes on). Logically I know that I am not the only one who has had to overcome obstacles. However, my brain is telling me that if I let myself really love or enjoy the things I have now they will be taken away from me. Because of that the energy source I have behind it is sort of “obligation” instead of “joy and choice”. I know that I am not protecting myself from anything (pre-frontal) but yet I am having trouble switching over my energy source to something like freedom or love. Thoughts?
