We all come into the world helpless, dependent, needing acceptance, to be treated as worthy, and to be loved. Our father’s absence leaves us vulnerable and susceptible to psychological, emotional and mental health issues. This is called a Father Wound!

There is a real challenge to identify our Father Wounds when we refuse to simply consider the idea we needed him because of our loyalty to the love, perseverance, and strength of our single mothers. But nonetheless, the wound still exists and weaves its way into our hearts and subconscious minds influencing dysfunctional behaviors and patterns causing us to repeat cycles within our own relationships.

Father Wounds can be caused by:
💔 Neglect
💔 Absence
💔 Abuse
💔 Control
💔 Withholding

The impact of a Father Wound is a deep emotional pain living and breathing within our subconscious creating a life of limitations, distortions, sabotage, low-self esteem, dysfunction, and much more 😢. The saddest part is of it all is most times we are aware of the pain but yet unaware of its roots and the impact it is having on our day to day lives.

Barriers to Healing Your Father Wound:
✔️Pride: Will NOT confront the issue declaring “I’M FINE!”
✔️Sin: Will NOT seek to confess the sin that got you here nor receive forgiveness.
✔️The Wound Itself: Continuous internal trauma
✔️Lies: Misconceptions about yourself, birth father which leads to misconceptions about God the father.

How do you heal?
❤️Confront: your trauma, acknowledging you are not fine and you need help.
❤️Confess: the sins & mistakes, and allow forgiveness in. This includes Generational Trauma.
❤️ Stop: rehearsing the story and allowing it to be a re-run within your mind. Let go of the story. Learn how to empower others from your story.
❤️ Speak Truth: about who you are, learn the truth of your father’s background so you can allow compassion to come in and forgiveness to take hold, and open yourself up to the love of God.

This won’t be easy. So don’t do it alone. Find an amazing therapist who can assist you in your journey to healing!
