The Father Wound

I heard that phrase yesterday in a conversation.  It was being used to describe why a person was the way that they were.  It was used in the context of identity formation, but a father wound could definitely shape your sense of who you are.

Honestly, it could be a a Mother Wound as well; it could be any one really.  It’s just that Father’s have that much of an impact on their children.  And the main consequence is to compensate for the wound – whatever the wound it is.  It can shape your sense of identity.  It might explain why you do the things that you do.
