Hey Happy, I'm really noticing a change in you. You seem very clear about what you're feeling, and you have good insights into how it's bringing up feelings from the past. You seem a lot more real than when you were in more of an 'up' mood and focusing so much on your therapist. I like the real Happy, although maybe it doesn't feel so good to you right now.

To offer encouragement, I'd say that once you get the connection between the past and the present feelings, then you know where you need to do some healing. You can heal those old wounds that are exposed by the loss of your safe harbor. Just reconnecting with the old pain is a good thing, because it allows you to start grieving. As long as that old pain is hidden, it just messes up your life in ways you don't understand. So it's a positive thing that you're connecting with that hurting little girl. Then you can learn to grieve with her, comfort her, and create that safe harbor for her. It feels awful going through those old feelings, but you can do it. You'll end up stronger, happier, and more whole.
