The Impact Of Our Parents: Healing The Mother/Father Wound Ep#383

Mar 7, 2021

Regardless if your parents were amazing or downright awful, it is highly likely that there are certain things you experienced as a child that have greatly impacted your current reality. And, not necessarily in a positive way. Although we don’t realize it at the time, we take in every bit of information from our parents, form beliefs off of that information, and develop a complex system of coping mechanisms. 

So, maybe your mom always picked her body apart in front of you, so you developed the belief that you had to have a “perfect” body in order to be worthy. Or lovable. Or a “real woman”. And this belief led to you clinging to perfectionism around your relationship with your body. Or maybe your dad was constantly absent leading you to conclude that men in your life will abandon you. And now, in adulthood, you find yourself picking romantic partners who aren’t emotionally or physically available or searching for approval from your male co-workers.

Reckoning with the impact of your parents is no small feat and can stir up many uncomfortable thoughts and emotions. But, on the other side of that reckoning is unbelievable healing and freedom. Trust… we don’t dig up this shit for the fun of it. We do it to heal. To move to the other side. To access our worth and our happiness. In this episode, I share a three-part formula you can use to unpack the effects of your parents, begin to let go of the past, and access your “enoughness”.

This pod explores:

  • The real reason you cling to people-pleasing, perfectionism, and control
  • Why we still want approval from our parents… even when they’re total asshats
  • An easy, 3-step acronym to help you deal with the residue of your childhood
  • How to figure out the beliefs you created due to what was modeled for you by your parents (and what to do to change them)
