The love and wounds we received as children shape our beliefs about ourselves and the world and impact our repeating behaviors when faced with uncertainties and stress. Healing your inner child is a transformative journey toward self-discovery and emotional growth. As adults, it is imperative that we give space to explore and understand our inner child’s needs and offer messages of compassion.
