Daisy are you safe right now?

Look around you, is there an imminent physical threat to your being right now?

If so, get out now. Go somewhere, anywhere.

Or is this scream an old one?

I think a lot of us have screams inside us and it doesn't mean we are coming apart or losing it, it just means that we know fear and powerlessness.


But it doesn't mean that we have to stay fearful and powerless. Use your adult self to pull out of that feeling. Visualize the scream coming out, meeting the air and changing.

I used to always visualize that scream as turning into a butterfly once it hit the light of day and I would watch it flutter away.

When my T first suggested that, I really thought he had gone mental himself. But it does work. It also leaves you with a beautiful image.

Take care, find safety in yourself and what's around you.

Seldom.
