A deprived childhood prevents us from realizing our potential, writes Rama Awasthi.
Deep within us lurks an inner child, a part of our own self requiring urgent attention and healing. If we do not pay heed to this inner child, we might experience sadness and loneliness; it could be the proverbial trap that prevents us from realising our potential, and leading to anger and addictions. Many of us carry a wounded inner child within us possibly because we experienced a lack of love and acceptance in childhood. Or it could be that we were scared as children, and as a result, the programming of our subconscious mind became negative and we led insecure, unhappy lives later.
