That is a wonderful and beautifully told. Caring for and loving the child I was has been the most healing thing for me. I donít have any photos of myself as a child, some exist but I havenít managed to get them. I donít even know how I looked, as I couldnít bear to look at my childhood photos, I simply hated that miserable hurt kid. I remember him now and I care about what happened to him. Itís such a big part of self-acceptance I couldnít care for myself while I hated the child I was.
