The Rest of You Is Waiting For Rescue
What happened to the REST of you? Those bits, those pieces were systematically rejected, strangled, neglected, broken off and buried.
Dearest, you took the whole of you, like a beautiful mirror and you shattered it to pick out the "imperfections" and leave more of the "good stuff."
You. Shattered. You.
Some of you will be thinking, I did NOT conform to other's explicit demands of me! No? Neither did I. What DID I do? I conformed to the defense/security/isolation/do-it-all-myself demands that I PUT ON ME in reaction to them.
I shattered me. You shattered you.
Why is this GREAT news? Ask anyone who has coached with me. I always tell them, if YOU didn't do it, YOU cannot fix it. You now need no one else's permission or direct cooperation to get yourself to the Restoration & Renovation phases.
Now you can see part of the reason your life has such a strong rescuer theme in it. You have been in need of a rescue for almost ever and no one is coming! Many don't WANT you to stop being a lop-sided self, because you are too useful to them that way. Those that did come to help you, couldn't do the heavy lifting you
needed. That is as it should be, because real rescue is always supposed to be Self-Rescue.
Welcome to The Art of Self-Rescue
You now know WHY you need a rescue: because you shattered you for safety, for approval and for success. Your continued focus on why Piece A of you is better than Piece B, leaves many beautiful pieces of you rejected, lost and abandoned. You are fragmented and that feeling that you can't find peace comes from you being in too many pieces.
It is critical that you take full responsibility for your own shattering. Otherwise you are a victim and victims stay stuck until some mythical time when they are rescued. You are NOT a victim. You broke you and it was impossible for you to do anything else in a world that teaches you to shatter from infancy.
Recognize your role so we may begin your RECLAMATION next week...
