I Need to Take Care of My Inner Child

She's in so much pain, and I need to nurture her....but how do I do that? 279 People

    She's Still Broken

    The younger version of myself is still inside me and is broken. She feels betrayed that he did that to her. Why would he do that to an 8-year-old girl that just wanted to play dolls and be happy. But no he had to break her trust and hurt her. He took her heart and tore it up and...

    Skinny Minny (minnie)

    Loves to play, she loves how everyone always tells her she's beautiful. She loves how everyone wishes she would eat more, just because she's too picky and too skinny. She's always in the imaginary world. Skinny Minny has plenty of nicknames, given to her by people who are always...

    Cry, Little Sweetie, Cry

    Mom died when I was only 12 years old. At the funeral, I was told "Don't cry. Crying won't bring her back." "Keep a stiff upper lip." The people telling me this were significant adults in my life: the pastor, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles, adult friends of the family...

    If you can get in touch with your inner child

    today, you will be able to easily figure out the answer to a conundrum. You may now be attempting to evaluate a situation from a mature, adult point of view. You have probably worked through all of the rational, practical answers to it in your mind, and you may still feel...

    Writing A Letter To My Inner Child

    Several years ago,  I saw this letter written in one of my books. Inside the book there was a chapter on Cultivating a Relationship with Your Inner Child. And it gives an example of a letter from an adult to her inner child. I really would like to share with you. Dear...

    I love you little one.

    They we're threatened by your health, your light, your love, and your perfect candor. They couldn't relate so they took it away. But it wasn't your fault. I was there and I saw. You were born a free little girl and someone took away your innocence only after 4 years of...

    She needs to be taken care of

    and reassured. In many ways the pain I carry with me today is residue from unresolved pain I had as a child. I've written about it many times on EP, but what happened is that my 8-yr-old brother was kidnapped in 1981. I was almost ten. He was taken by a family acquaintance...

    She Needs Me Right Now

    Too many memories filled with pain. Too many years filled with his shame. Too many lies to cover it up. No one heard her cries and that sums it up. I owe it to her to listen to her cry and to help her figure out why.  I am listening inner child; it is time to speak. Let me be...

    Just starting to get to know about my inner

    child as part of my therapy for depression. She needs looking after. I'm finding it strange but nice at the same time. Would welcome any tips from anyone who had lost theirs and how they found theirs again and got in tune with them.
