Emancipate Your Mind: 096: Healing Childhood Emotional Neglect Through Inner Child Work

If you’ve ever felt like you’re at war with yourself as you go after the things you want and need in life, it’s probably because there are childhood parts of you that aren’t used to having their wants and needs heard, validated, and met. Giving yourself what you want and need as an adult can feel scary to those parts and they can react in big emotional ways.

In this episode, we build on the work we discussed in Episode 20: Reparenting Your Inner Child to help you get out of the war zone and create a treaty between your childhood and adult parts. ___________________________________________________________________
