hi madeline,
that fear sounds awful. I'm sorry to hear about it. And I'm sorry that the exercise turned negative on you so suddenly.

This is just a thought, but it came to me because I was thinking about my OWN childhood and how I wish *I* could go back and help/fix/save that little girl of mine.

Maybe...instead of trying to rescue that girl...you need to forgive her for not being able to save herself? Because you can't go back, no matter how hard you try to visualize it. And things that happened to you were not your fault, but most people feel guilt and self-anger at not being able to prevent them.

So that's where I was thinking: Instead of raging at the past and trying to save the small me/you/etc, maybe we should just try to gently forgive them?

That might be TOTALLY off base for you, and I apologize if it's ineptly worded. It feels really meaningful to ME right now, for MY past, so I got excited and wanted to share that idea.

take care,
JenStar
