Healing the Father Wound
Healing the father wound is the most important work that you’ll ever do.
If you grew up with a Father who was not able to meet your basic emotional needs you may be struggling with the remnants of the impact of that relationship.
Attracting partners who are as aloof, depriving, narcissistic, emotionally unavailable, or cruel as your father figure once was is one way the wound manifests.
Ignoring your own intuition, struggling to trust oneself and others, feeling like you are a burden, or not worthy of loving attention and effort from those you are connected to is yet another consequence.
The relationships we have with our Fathers are formative. As our first male care providers, the ways we connected with them or the lack of connection we had with them changes the way we relate to ourselves and others throughout our life-spans.
It’s not too late. You can take these matters into your own hands and heal the father wound that prevents you from embracing yourself and your life fully.

Is this the right course for you?
Do you tend to sacrifice your own needs in the service of always helping others?
Was your relationship with your father deeply disappointing, neglectful, or devaluing of you?
Do you struggle to get close to romantic partners due to fear of abandonment?
Are you out of touch with your own sense of intuition?
Fathers have a huge impact on our lives. Whether we want to admit it or not, our relationships with these men or lack thereof inform how we relate to ourselves and how we relate to others in fundamental ways.
Social anxiety, a tendency to isolate, withdrawal from others and avoidance of direct communication about thoughts and feelings are all symptoms of “daddy issues.”
Not getting the emotional or physical support you needed in childhood can have lasting impacts well into adulthood.
If your needs for protection, safety, trust and love were unmet by your father, it may be time to give that loss the attention it needs so that you can heal and move forward in ways that are in alignment with who you really are.
