I listened to Stacie’s talk Our Inner Child. It made me cry. In a sad way I feel like I’ve never had that loving support from an adult saying I’ve got this. You can let go. I still feel like the weight is on my shoulders and I’m just as afraid as ever. I have plenty of courage but no confidence - listened to that one as well. I constantly feel like I have no idea what I’m doing but I’m always going thru the motions doing something. Am I the only one feeling this way? More work to come in this area, I’m sure.

@Mary, you are not alone! So many of us didn't have that resource of a loved adult supporting us in this essential way as a child! Starting to soften with those terrified younger parts actually helped me settle a little more and it started to not feel so heavy. We then have to start looking around to find the people (and higher support) who do have us... this is a whole new level of learning for most of us: to be supported in this way. The corrective experience is for us to learn to hold onto our younger child parts while letting ourselves be held (by others, by our higher power). It is a process, not easy, but so worth it. Thank you for sharing here, letting us help hold you in this way as you keep going. You've got this, and we've got you❤❤

@Mary give yourself a hug and tell that inner, frightful you I’ve got this, let go. You will be so glad you did. I am very excited to begin our journey together into your strengths, needs and values. I believe you will build your confidence to match your tremendous courage! You are so loved. 💕
