“Today I ask my child-within what she would like to do for fun and I listen and honor her requests if I can. Today I take ten minutes to engage in some play, thus affirming the needs of my precious child-within.”

Let’s Begin with the Affirmation for Week 37!
As I grew older, I may have criticized myself for still acting child-like, while today I know that I had every reason to play like a small child. This day I can understand my child-within feelings due to those past experiences.
The causality of my abuse may have steered a part of me to be a serious child. Yet, I may have pleasant memories of child’s play, I couldn’t escape my worry and anxiety. The awareness of my sexual abuse or the foretelling of it felt like a heavy burden that had shaped around the space of my consciousness.
I need to have those moments to be my true self, which was taken away from me through abuse and shame. While healing today, I remain in better spirits when I allow myself to let go and play- filled with spontaneity and leisure. I look forward to the feeling of butterflies in my stomach when the opportunity arises to play with those who support me and enjoy laughs too!
