A soulful child doesn’t really have ‘failure’ in their vocabulary. The concept makes no sense to them. They know that they have intrinsic value and this is always greater than their achievements. However because their expression comes from such a deep and heart-felt place they feel vulnerable and tend to constantly wonder whether that expression is seen as good enough in other people’s eyes. This can make them very perfectionistic and they like and need a lot of affirmation that both them and their creations are good enough. In fact ‘good enough ‘isn’t really OK! Soulful children need to feel that they make a very special contribution to the world and only then they are really happy!
