Self Practice Supports Us!
Underneath the layers of survival, the cry of Developmental Trauma in surviving adults may be this:
“Please sit with me, care for me and be with me. I’m hurting and in need. It’s been so painful and unsafe that I haven’t even been able to feel and remember how bad it was.”
Each of us needs the other to be profoundly gentle and understanding, while we ourselves are often clumsy or lost.
So we fall down a lot but keep choosing again to bring tenderness and forgiveness to ourselves and the people in our lives.
