The Good Girl Archetype was a survival mechanism that we created in childhood to keep us safe.
It stopped us getting told of, receiving criticism and it always looks to authority to find out what it needs to do next
It firmly wires our inner authority, our intuition, our feelings and our sense of who we are outside our body
Looking for validation:
Am I beautiful enough?
Am I clever enough
Am I good enough?
Am I pleasing you?
This construction, depending on our experiences can stay with us long into adulthood when we believe we need to get things right to gain approval or stay connected. It is how we get attention in school or make ourselves useful at home.
It’s the beginning of abandoning our intuition and our own needs
We reject the part of us that instinctively knows
We reject the wisdom of the heart
We reject the one who speaks her truth
And it screams at times,
Before giving up
The connections break
And the new reality is created
What do I need to do now?
What should I wear?
How can I give them the right answer?
Yet there is a way to not abandon you
And that is to be you
To your heart and your womb
Inhabit each cell
And call forth your voice
And feel the energy
Tingling with joy
Or closing down with fear
That’s the truth
From the womb
