Have you ever been cracked open?

Do you know what your core wound is?

Molly Carroll is with us on this week’s special episode of Beauty After Betrayalâ„¢ Podcast to help us better understand these concepts and how they affect us throughout our lives.

Molly has been a therapist for twenty-five years, listening to thousands of people’s stories and holding space for them along the way. She has taught workshops at companies such as Apple and LinkedIn, published two books, given two TED talks, and has even had a private audience with the Dalai Lama!

On top of these amazing achievements, she has also just launched her new podcast Cracking Open (I was lucky enough to be interviewed by her for episode 5!).

Molly’s own cracking open occurred when she lost her father, along with six other important people in her life – all in the span of just a year-and-a-half. Her journey through her own trauma and grief helped her realize her life’s true purpose – holding space for other people while they are cracking open.

We also talk about core wounds, and how everybody came into this world with one. Years of being a therapist has taught her that there is always something underneath the issue at hand. There was always a root issue – a core wound.

Molly identifies three different types of core wounds – abandonment, betrayal, and worthiness, and we talk about how they continue to grow and affect our behavior and patterns into adulthood.

She has developed a program to help people identify their core wound, learn to look at it with love and compassion (and realize that it’s actually their superpower), and then help them figure out how to face it in everyday life in order to move past it.

Molly and I dive into my own core wound (spoiler alert: it’s abandonment!) and how it continues to show up in my life to this day.

Bringing more attention and awareness to our core wounds teaches us to have great compassion for ourselves and others.

I hope you join us for this compassionate and heart-opening conversation.
