You made me sick

I was exploring within myself and I encountered the phrase: “You make me sick!”

It wasn’t clear if this was directed outward from me or inward toward me. But you know, I’ve been sick for several years now.

So maybe this was literal, and I figure it’s time to reframe it:

“Your lack of warmth or understanding and the emotional demands you put on me caused my body to be clenched and clogged up which both caused and exacerbated health problems throughout my life. I am making the space inside me now to gently hold the experiences of that child self so I can bring warmth, understanding, permission and acceptance to the child I was then and to the woman I am now.”
