006 Dear inner Child: Tainted Love

Dear Inner child,

We know how to give love, lots of it…

But we don’t know how to receive love.

We are suspicious of love because we have only learned about conditional love.

I am older now, but you are still that terrified little girl trapped in a house of horrors.

You are still expecting to be beaten, humiliated, ridiculed and abandoned. How do I convince you I am in charge of us now, that you can trust me to take care of you? That the first step to receiving love is loving yourself first scars, warts, welts an’ all.

That the woman you now see in the mirror has acheived so much. That she is a walking miracle. That she has not sucumbed to the graveyard of the soul laid waste by crippling pain.
