the core wound

Not knowing, in our blood and bones, that we are truly loved or lovable undermines our capacity to give and receive love freely. This is the core wound that generates interpersonal conflict and a whole range of familiar relationship tangles. Difficulty trusting, fear of being misused or rejected, harboring jealously and vindictiveness, defensively stone-walling, having to argue and prove we’re right, feeling easily hurt or offended and blaming others for our pain – these are just a few ways that our insecurity about being loved or lovable shows up.
