    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...

    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...

    Letter To Me

    Dear little Brigitte, It was never your fault when she tried to kill herself. You are not a bad person. God made you and you are unique and special, beautiful and intelligent. All those bad words she screamed at you over and over again were meant for her, not you. You are loyal...

    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...

    My inner child feared

    My name's Alysa Usagi Gold.

    I've been Emotionally Abused all my life. It's gotten to the point where I seem to appear 'Parasitic' & people just don't know how to take care of an innocent little baby girl trapped inside an 'Adult Boy' Body. Whoever is looking for a baby girl to 'Adopt' via EP & Email, until...

    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...

    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.

    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...
