Thanks for sharing Tabitha. I saw my T yesterday but we didnt end up really talking about the "inner child" topics directly, at least not as they relate to my childhood. She was wonderful though and I think it helped me to reconnect to her.

In general, I DO find use in it in current time... the idea of "is the way you are responding to this situation being fueled and guided by the adult you or the child?" Sometimes that helps me to make better decisions for myself and stop acing out of "please love me!!" needs. As I mentioned earlier in the post, my partner and I broke up a few days ago after 2.5 years. I find the child in me screaming loudly to get back with him, regardless of how many times he has shown me he wont meet my needs. Focusing on the adult me seems to help me make better decisions, even though they're painful. Incredibly painful.... ugh.

I do think there are emotions there about my childhood stuff that I havent ever explored or really allowed myself to talk about. I plan to talk to my T about changing the way we do type of exploration. "Rewriting the scripts" of what really happened with what I wish had happened just feels... weird and not terribly useful.

I think my mind is too wrapped up in my recent loss right now to think too hard about exploring other therapy topics... I'm sure I'll come back and reread all these posts in a few weeks once my mind is calmer. Thanks again for sharing your experiences.
