My Child Within: A Poem to the Wounded Child
My Child Within by Kathleen Algoe is a moving and wise poem that describes the journey of embracing the wounded inner child as a primary focus in the recovery from childhood abuse, trauma, and neglect.
My Child Within
I found my child within today,
Children need unconditional love, nurturance, acceptance, and appropriate limit-setting from primary caretakers in order to grow and mature. Adults who did not receive these gifts in childhood must learn self-nurturance, self-love, self-acceptance, and/or impulse control. Inner child work is about changing your relationship with your wounded inner child from one of self-loathing and rejection to one of love and acceptance. When this "re-parenting" occurs, the wounded inner child can heal and grow, and one's life becomes much more manageable, joyful, and fulfilling. If you need help in this process, online counseling might be right for you.
