“Success– In the professional world or in academic fields– Is often seen that a person does not have any unresolved emotional issues. I can tell you for sure that this isn’t true. A lot of women compensate for not having their emotional needs met by excelling in other areas of life.” – Terri Cole


Do you think father wounds are obvious?

That you can only have a father wound if you had a ‘difficult’ father

Or do you think successful women can’t have father wounds?

There is a lot of misinformation about the father wound online, from what causes one to how it impacts us.

In this episode, I set the record straight by sharing the top six father wound myths I’ve encountered and the truth behind each.


The most common father wound myths:

  • 2:25 “Father-daughter wounds (or ‘daddy issues’) are always easy to recognize”
  • 4:10 “If a daughter is successful, she doesn’t have father issues”
  • 6:50 “Only absent fathers cause issues”
  • 7:50 “Father-daughter issues are less serious than issues in other parental relationships”
  • 11:10 “Father-daughter wounds are only created through direct mistreatment”
  • 12:35 “You need help from your father to heal a father-daughter wound”
