How healing your inner child can change your life

Do you feel like true happiness isn’t for you? Most queer people carry the trauma of feeling ‘othered’ our whole lives. We focus on survival and forget to heal our inner child as adults. Let’s heal your inner child! Meanwhile, get your free copy of the 5 Building Blocks of a Happy Gay Life here.

Hear Brian’s advice on how to heal your inner child:

Finding self-acceptance and happiness

You may recognize Brian Falduto as ‘the gay kid from School of Rock.’ But today, he is The Gay Life Coach, a coaching practice and platform designed to make the inner work to heal your inner child more accessible to the LGBTQ community. Brian is also the host of The Gay Life Coach Podcast, a show that promotes mindfulness in the queer community.

On this episode of Queer Money®, Brian joins us to explain why young gay men are not having conversations about what’s going on in their heads and hearts. He weighs in on why filling your life with fun won’t make you happy if you’re carrying past trauma, sharing what he does to pass through painful moments without getting stuck in them. Listen in for insight on initiating the healing conversation in your life and learn how mindful awareness can help our community embrace radical self-acceptance!
