Your inner child is a part of your subconscious mind. Your needs are to be seen, loved, and kept safe as a child. When these needs aren't fulfilled, it creates inner child wounds.
Being emotionally and mentally injured, neglected, or even abused in childhood can result in inner child wounds. As you get older, you tend to have temper tantrums, face challenges in making friends, and remain suspicious of the motives of others.
Below are 16 signs you have a wounded Inner Child:
- You are easily offended and hurt; people have to walk on eggshells around you.
- You don't have a strong sense of character.
- You attract emotionally unavailable people.
- You need external validation.
- You have serious abandonment issues and cling to connections, even when they are TOXIC.
- You're vindictive to yourself, rigid, and a perfectionist.
- You feel that there is something not right with you, in the deepest parts of yourself.
- You feel insufficient as a man or a woman.
- You knowingly like conflicting with people around you.
- You're a people-pleaser.
- You're an accumulator of things, emotions, people, and you have a hard time letting go.
- You don't trust yourself.
