You aren't intruding here. No worries.

I have shared a lot of my memories and feelings with my therapist. When I feel young and small, he encourages me to tell him what I'm thinking and he makes it very safe for her to share anything with him.

It is hard to do this sometimes. Lately I've been writing letters from these different parts and I take them and read them. I'm always afraid that he is going to get mad at what I've written, especially when it is really, really hostile. But he doesn't and it does help to have him know that I'm hurting. He talks a lot about the need for a witness as I'm sorting all this out. I sort of whispered today, "I just want you to know. I don't know why I want you to know. I just do." And he said, "of course you do. I need to know. And I'll be with you, it isn't too much for me."

It is OK that you still have a part of you that has to hold all the bad stuff. But it will feel better if you can let her share it. Take baby steps. It is really hard. But you can do it.
