One thing that helped me was a bit of visualization. Do you have any pictures of yourself at that age? One that shows just how young and vulnerable you were? I've been able to look at photos of myself and come up with compassion, anger (at my parents), and love. Then you can eventually make that huge leap to accepting that the photo of that cute lovable child is the same person that you are now. That you are lovable, deserving of nuturing care, and even though the damage was done in the past, the person you are now is STILL deserving of love and acceptance.

Having that picture in my mind (a tow-headed tike smelling a flower, in my case) really went a long way to helping me love the me I am now.
