I can see why you are so upset. I'm just discovering the young girl who is hurting. But I recognize that it is my adult self who hates her and wants her to go away. We are actively working right now on allowing her voice and her feelings.

Maybe it would be helpful to think of this as two states - Young child/angry -- young child/passive, instead of two different people. Just like all children have to recognize that happy them is still them, mad them is still them, etc. It sounds like it might be about forgiving yourself.

I hope your Therapist can help you make sense of all of this. I struggle against the roller coaster ride of when memories come up and when they are quiet. It has been a long haul for you but you are so brave to stay with it and keep trying. I look to you as an inspiration!

Let us know how you are doing.
Hugs from me.
