“When you have a father wound, there’s a lot of striving to be considered ‘good enough.’ In order to be loved, you must feel like you’re adding value. It’s almost like earning your place, earning your love.” – Terri Cole


What drives your ambition? 

Are you passionate about creating something, or are you out to prove something?

Or are you out to prove someone wrong? 

I fell into the latter category in my twenties, unaware of how my father wound drove my career ambitions. 

I was also unaware of how much my father wound was influencing the romantic partners I chose. 

In this episode, I am covering how an unhealed father wound impacts our relationships, careers, and health to raise your awareness and hopefully save you years of pain, heartache, and dissatisfaction.
