OUR COPING STYLES ARE THE UNCONSCIOUS DEFENSE MECHANISMS WE ADOPTED IN EARLY CHILDHOOD.
As infants and young children, we are like little sponges, soaking up what we’re taught both explicitly and implicitly from our environments.
IF WE DON’T GET EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED at any given stage of early childhood development, we adapt by adopting a Coping Style.
Even parents with the best of intentions can miss what we need, especially since most are not aware of the subtle developmental needs of a child.
WE ALL HAVE AT LEAST ONE, IF NOT SEVERAL of the Coping Styles. Source Code is the practice of identifying and healing them all.
As adults, we often mistake our Coping Styles for our true personality, when really they are like old scar tissue getting in the way of being and creating what we truly desire.
When we uncover and name these outdated defense mechanisms, we begin the beautiful process of emergence into WHO WE REALLY ARE.
