The banished Inner Child

Serena, thank you once again. I feel you are a healer, a leader and a trusted guide.

Talking of incest

I forgot all about my child within until I listened to posts on various support forums. Fellow Survivors reminded me that I do need to integrate my  “little me.”  I’ve been forcing myself to glance at a picture of her and I’ve just been wanting her to behave, to sit still and to be quiet. But she will not obey.

little me (2)Missing: an adult who will love me

For this post I’ve decided to look her squarely in the eye. And I’ve come to realise that  I shut her out because she’s a nuisance. But that is my mother’s voice …

I need to find my own voice and learn to treat her with love and compassion.

PS. The photo was taken during the winter of 2010. One of our last real winters.

    1. I considered going into the basement to find the rare photo of me as a child. I think I have more trouble connecting with the adolescent and teenage me, though the child too. Just discard her. But that does not work.
