Signs You Were Parented Through Unhealed Wounds

Signs You Were Parented Through Unhealed Wounds

Signs you were parented through unhealed wounds:

  • It felt like nothing was ever good enough
  • They were hard to connect with and feel close to
  • Boundaries were not allowed or respected
  • Used their role as ‘the parent’ to dominate
  • Their needs took priority over yours
  • Used guilt, manipulation and were overly critical
  • They were explosive, chaotic or unpredictable
  • You were afraid to say how you really felt
  • You felt less than, unseen and misunderstood
  • You became hypervigilant, walked on eggshells anticipating the shoe to drop
  • Your needs and feelings were unimportant
