An undeveloped core is connected to rejection, trauma, and abuse in childhood. When the trauma is severe, and the person becomes frozen at their memory of the event, it may trigger multiple personality disorders where altered parts of one's personality have been fragmented.
An undeveloped core will isolate you and emotionally distance you from others, specifically those that love you. It will have you create an emotional barrier that adversely affects relationships.
Some of the characteristics of an undeveloped core are:
Feeling of being stuck
Knowing there is more to life than what you have now
Sense of inferiority
Feeling like your living life backward
Many suffer from an undeveloped core. An undeveloped core is very common with people that continue to drag all the pain, insecurity, wounds and abuse they receive during their early childhood developmental years and teen years into their adult life.
“One of the common symptoms of an undeveloped core is the feeling or belief that you have a lifetime sentence of being frozen, static or the sense as if life is going in reverse.”
People, especially children that did not receive love, affirmation, attention, validation, protection, and training in a stable family environment may enter the adolescent and teenage years emotionally undeveloped. To counter the anxiety and fear of having to face the uncertainties of life, they may create a false or fake personality. Because they were never told who they are, their inner core remains undeveloped or empty. As such, they begin to ‘fill in the blanks' with an identity or personality that isn't real.
An undeveloped core must be addressed. Get the professional coaching you need to help strengthen your life to be who God called you to be.
