If you experienced any kind of trauma as a young child - and let’s be real, in some way, shape, or form, everybody did - your inner child (the part of your belief system shaped by your first 5-7 years of life) needs the adult version of you to face it, own it, and heal it, and they will send you indicators of such that get louder and louder until you do.
If you ignore or dismiss or trivialize that need to heal, you might eventually find yourself in a situation where you have *no other choice* but to look your trauma square in the eye and deal with it.
Maybe that looks like the dissolution of an important relationship, or the onset of a life-threatening illness, or the travesty of false allegations of criminal behavior. It could be anything, really.
But if you don’t listen to the whispers, they might become screams.
My best-selling memoir, Truth Matters, Love Wins showcases the power of keeping love close when you have truth on your side, and is a must-read for anyone curious about how to handle the pain and anger that accompany a devastating life curveball.
