The Inner Child of Us and How to Deal With It
Mmm let's start with the fact - we are all little children. Yes, deary, we truly are.
Does not sound too appealing, does it? But pretending to be too "adultish" won't work here anymore... we are going deep!
And truth is truth - we all have a little child inside ourselves that is often called in spiritual world: THE INNER CHILD. Because it is literally.... inside yourself!
It is the part of you that creates those famous and well-known tantrums. You know, the never ending dramas and all of those "Ooops how could I acted this way. It was so childish!". Yes, that part...
