Hi everyone. I just needed to share this AHA moment I've been having. I've had many of them through these last couple of days /journey. I'm working through part two of Alan Gordon's process. Listening to the podcast of Mandy's learning how to self soothe and comfort her inner bully was really profound for me. It's amazing to me how we can all be different people but experience very similar fear and the scare tactics that are brains will go through. It was such a breakthrough moment for me to realize that what I sometimes need is some comfort. This is something that I've struggled with for many many years but realizing that is one of the reasons why I've never felt safe and why the world is such a scary place for me and why I try to control that through physical ways, and now through physical pain. Wowzers. Deep breath.
