In 1 Corinthians 13 (the love chapter), Paul talks about putting away childish ways. In order to do that, we often need to heal the wounded child within.
These are some signs that you may have a wounded inner child:
You feel that there is something wrong with you.
You often experience anxiety.
You’re a people-pleaser.
You don’t have a strong sense of identity.
You feel inadequate.
You constantly criticize yourself.
You’re unforgiving to yourself, rigid and a perfectionist.
You have a hard time committing and trusting.
You have deep abandonment issues and stay in toxic relationships.
