For my dear Georg

Our racional parental primary selves have learned to protect the child in us by staying away from anything that may potentially be emotional or traumatic. Their idea about hou to take care of the inner child is to bury in the underground and keep all feelings suppressed. They become very anxious about exploring feelings because emotions make them feel out of control. Their philosophy is to just keep doing what's worked so far.
Why risk changing when they've survived until? Don't rock the boat...change could be possible disaster.
We need to acknowledge our feelings and human emotions and gentlu resssure them that its safe to explore the expression of our feelings.
