Once you can "feel" your inner child having temper tantrums, enraged all the time, what do you say to your brain? And is it your brain you imagine talking to, or your inner adult? As I understand it, the child is generating the rage, and the parent is generating the pressure (to be perfect, good, etc.) that makes the child enraged. I am trying to grasp, emotionally as well as intellectually, the role of the parent, and how the parent behaves. Does the parent soothe the child? Calm her down? Simply love and accept? I have tried all of these and they work at times, but I know there is more to it. I feel that I need to get in touch with this inner parent more deeply. Anyone?
