One of the heartbreaking things about the human experience is that it’s both universal and incredibly isolating.
Every single person, whether they’d admit to it or not, feels unworthy in some way. And yet most of us walk around feeling like there’s something wrong with us — that we’re particularly broken compared to other people. And we fear giving voice to that “brokenness,” because what happens when another person sees the darkest side of who we are?
Our friend Thais Sky — a coach and therapist-in-training — has made it her life’s work to explore and help heal that pervasive sense of “not-enough-ness” she calls “the worthiness wound.”
In this episode, we dove DEEP with Thais and got into:
- What the worthiness wound is, and who/what created it in the first place.
- Why certain emotions feel SO uncomfortable, including ones (like happiness) that you’d think would be easy to experience.
- The signs you’ve got an unhealed worthiness wound, and how to recognize the triggers as they come up.
- How to start letting your feelings flow naturally, without bottling them up, pretending they don’t exist, or soothing yourself in unhealthy ways.
After you’ve listened, leave a comment below to let us know what resonated most about this conversation and how you’re thinking about worthiness differently now.
