I know, the title of this article sounds ironic. Doesn't seem to make sense? Read on...
Most people in so many different ways have not completed their childhood. What do I mean by that? Learning how to parent one's inner child, for most, may never happen. For others, if they have self-awareness, may start to see how important it is to do so so that they are not relying on their partners, friends, people around them to do it for them!
How do these usually manifest?
Here's an example: Needing others to soothe them and be demanding in their need for your love. And when they don't get what they want, they throw a tantrum, like a child. I am very sure you have experienced this sort of things in your relationships, whether romantic or not.
You can easily spot one who has not completed their childhood psychologically by how they interact and behave, here are some clues:
We all have been there, in one way or another. The question is: do you have the self-awareness to know this is what you're doing? Perhaps it is time to take stock and contemplate this.
With self-awareness, parenting yourself is the key, and here are some questions for you to ponder upon:
Can you now see why, if we do not parent ourselves, the views of ourselves, other people and the world just cannot stem from purity?
Our lenses of the world are just filtered by our wounds and our pain. And everyone has these lenses and wounds, no matter how fantastic your own parents were when you were growing up. But we know the reality is: there are no perfect parents, your parents have fucked up in one way or another.
Masking wounds away only pushes them into the shadow, to the point where you start believing those masks. And this is how many get lost in their inner relationship with self, with no conscious connection with their inner child or inner parent.
My message to you on this day is to look into your inner relationship with yourself. How is that relationship going? The freedom you will experience when you have this self-awareness is unparalleled and you will just flow with life with greater ease, with who you are, and all that you are.
