Well, what did you choose?
If you’re like me you want to hear the bad news and finish with the good news?
So let’s do this.
First of all, everything that’s ever happened in your life is a construct or creation by you. Hold on that’s starting to sound like good and bad news.
Good because logically you know you have created the interpretation, the perception, the point of view.
Bad because, damn! that means I have to be responsible for everything that I have created?!
So the bad news is really that depending on how you grew up and your upbringing, these constructs or creation by you may have been tarnished by situations or circumstances that for whatever reason were beyond your control.
Think of a movie for a moment. In the movie there are central and side characters. In your movie of your memories, YOU are the central character. Imagine if you caught a glimpse of the spin off movie of your side characters? What might that story tell?
No matter what happened to you, you can rewrite your ending. You can rewrite your moment within the movie You may not be able to change what happened in the movie overall, but you can change how you felt, thought, sensed in that moment.
I know this because it has worked for me to relive my childhood trauma memories and release the conversations I needed to have as a child. I found peace by being brave and courageous to take the first step at healing myself with the help of a psychologist.
But I’m also realising that everything in my life is impacted by those moments. It’s time to let go for the sake of both the inner child and the version of me right now who is walking this planet.
Otherwise she would be stuck in this vortex or in this old movie where the same thing replays over and over and the inner child is stuck, stuck in pain, stuck in suffering. It’s time to let her be free, be safe, be everything she is and wanted to be.
You’re not doing it for them. You’re doing it for yourself.
You have the power within you to overcome any obstacle and any hurdle. I trust and believe in you. Please feel free to reach out, although I’m in Australia I can point you to any services you may need.
Try to look after yourself and listen to your own concerns about you.
The good news really is you have the power within you to let this go. And remember you create everything in your world so from now on use your power for good, be intentional and clear about what you are creating moment to moment, knowing those old movies are just that old movies, moments in the past that you can now say don’t define who you are but have shaped you in some way to become the better version of you today.
