It's like a throw back...nothing could move forward because I was a child and I was being abused....Now I am not a child and I am not being abused .....

I am acting like it is still going on.....
and in a way it is, but not the way it was....
Needs time, attention and to be seen.
But it doesn't need my every moment....it doesn't need to cripple me.....I put it aside when I feel it, with the promise to return.....same as I would not leave a child in distress...I promise to return and deal with it.....all of it...nothing is to much.....

RR1,

This is such a great saying. This sentence makes so much sense. How many times I once left Little me in distress and might still from time to time.

Seeking something much more serene is awesome and challenging.

One thing that worked magically was when an older survivor told me on my face, "It's over...its over!"

Those two words, which I later often repeated to myself and in effect to inner child, as a parent would do, while soothing a child in distress...

yes!...As I have remind myself again and again stay inside the body and in the mind!

Sometimes I have to literally bring all my attention to the stomach, and breath...
