Will you take me seriously if I tell you about my inner child?

 Will you see the powerful woman that I am, if I open up and share my deepest doubts and fears?

We love to share about professional achievements, career goals, health tips,... but are reluctant to share about the emotional aspects that shape us as individuals. I’d love to change that…

As I've grown both personally and professionally, I have discovered how my deep-rooted unconscious beliefs and emotions are what really drive my choices and behaviours. It’s not what I know, it’s what I feel that makes the difference.

When I was feeling at the lowest during my burnout the concept of the “inner child” was introduced to me. I discovered that as adults we still carry within us a part that remembers our earliest experiences, has unfulfilled needs and dreams, and is still very vulnerable. It is a reflection of our past, the innocence we once possessed. It is the foundation upon which we've built our lives and careers.

I now see how, for years, I kept my inner child hidden behind a mask of confidence and determination, fearing that if I showed my doubts and fears, as well as my playfulness and joy, I might not be taken seriously. Can you relate to this, in a world that tends to prioritise knowledge and skills over how we feel about things?

I now also see that my inner child's traits have nothing to do with weakness. They are a source of strength, authenticity, and fulfilment. By acknowledging my emotional self and being compassionate towards this part of me, I have become more resilient, empathetic, collaborative, and courageous!

This topic is deeply meaningful to me. The struggles and challenges we face in our lives are not isolated from who we are at the core. I have experienced that by acknowledging and connecting with my inner child, I can foster healthier and more authentic work environments, improved relationships, and greater personal fulfilment and professional success.

So, I encourage you to take a moment today to consider this: how might your early life be influencing your present experiences, decisions, attitude and behaviour. Do you revisit the lessons you can learn from your past, both pleasant and unpleasant, and how they have shaped the person you are today? Do you stop to look at how all this may influence who you really want to be?

I’d love to support you on your journey of self-discovery, self-care and self-confidence.
