Carl Jung

I am not what has happened to me
But what I choose to become

Unfortunately, the truth of human existence is:
I am what was has happened to me
I am destined to be what was chosen for me to become

We live the narrative of our maladaptive childhood attachments, societal expectations and subsequent traumas. Moment to moment we are living our life trying to compensate for underlying hidden unmet psychological needs that motivate us to act. If we don’t bring awareness and insight to the truth of reality and self we will be doomed to live an existence “walled in alive”. We will live our life limited by our unique personal narrative to try and keep us safe, loved and worthy.
