This is a great description of the process I’m also working through except I’m following a different model called IFS (internal family systems). But very similar concept of making friends with our parts we try to hide. In IFS they call them “exiles”. That experience though of needing something or someone outside of us to fix our destructive emotions is with me so often. And it’s my biggest hurdle to overcome. I could write at length about this! Thanks again Kel for your time and thoughtful exploration/vulnerability. It’s true, we need emotionally resilient folks in this wave of trials. We need people who are willing to see the complexity of humanness and not jump to polarized places. Big hugs
