Therapy today was... intense. I am continually blown away by the false beliefs that we unravel that are unconsciously guiding me or fighting me on my path.
What I “learned” about myself as a child that I am painfully, delicately and compassionately unlearning as an adult. ✨
The “truths” about life that are simply not true. The “this is the only way” beliefs that are false and need to be rewritten.
The traffic in Nashville guided me to another path home, and I found myself parked in front of this church. Even with a car full of groceries that needed to get to the fridge, a Catholic school girl of 12 years who had not been to a mass in many moons walked into a strange church.
It was beautiful and quiet and still and sacred. I sat in a pew and cried. ✨
I vow to be a loving mother to my younger self as we navigate new pathways in life. Alternative ways of coping and interacting, of asking for help, of getting our needs met, of loving, of creating a new sense of safety.
Life is exhilarating, heartbreaking, breathtaking and exhausting. Be ever so kind to yourselves, Friends. 💜
