Feeling and being misunderstood is one of my core wounds.
Growing up, I felt like my parents didn’t understand where I was coming from (about most things). Hence blaming them for everything.
My family didn’t really talk about things, so there wasn’t any room to get understood either.
On top of that, there was a language barrier.
I grew up speaking Korean as a kid, and by the time I was in school, English took over as my primary language, which turned into “Konglish” at home.
This created an even bigger divide between me and my parents, which led to a lot of fighting and a lot of pain.
Thank God I ended up down a self-discovery and healing rabbit hole cuz it could’ve been a lot worse.
With that said, I just wanna make one thing clear.
This program is NOT about blaming our parents.
This program is about exploring and confronting the baggage we have accumulated.
So we can heal and feel free.
So we can go out in the world and be who we want to be.
So we can be seen and understood.
It’s up to us to change the narratives and the trajectory of our community. Let’s create a fucking massive ripple effect together.
Let’s start a conversation. I wanna hear your stories. No strings attached. For real.
