Confront past trauma

Perhaps as an adult, you’ve grown to move away from the pain you endured as a child. But that very pain could have driven you to learn ways to help others heal – and remember that some adults still feel the type of lack you had as a child. Maybe it was lack of attention, lack of safety, or lack of support. “When we look into trauma we had, we can find what our purpose is,” Pouncil says. She offers up her own story of having her parents move to another country, leaving her at a young age. “I didn’t grow up with my parents. I grew up feeling abandoned by them. Because of that, I grew this desire to help people develop their authentic self so they can feel whole so they don’t feel lacking because someone else isn’t there for them.”
