My therapist would completely agree with yours. I swear he does a happy dance when I admit to these little kid feelings. He invites them, he labels them and we work with them. Sometimes you have no choice but to allow that part of you to come forth and speak. It *is* the way to heal. Your childlike feelings need to be expressed, accepted and held. I'm glad your therapist thinks this is progress and will help you through it. I know it is really scary and mind-blowing. But I think you will connect to her in a deeper way than you have before, because this other part really needs her.

It is very discombobulating to feel like a little kid...haven't we worked really hard to be grown ups?! But it is the truth about what you are feeling. Let it out in the safety of her office.

The big question is: what does this younger part need to say and how do *you* feel about *her*? I still have such a hard time with all of this, the parts and pieces. But I no longer disallow it, I just can't comfort that part of myself yet. I'm working on it.
