Get your freaking hands off me, a child’s first memory, oh Mommy, help me… Welcome to TeTe & Espresso, a CastBox original, I’m TeTe. Let’s talk 1 minute life, and take a 1 minute morning espresso shot to start your day. This weeks theme is self forgiveness. Today’s topic, childhood trauma.
Scarring from the pain and hurt from the past is a constant pain, and a burden. A lot of times something happened that was out of our control, especially when we were young kids. It hurt us so much that we play it over and over, in disbelief that someone could hurt us so much! Why!!? Why me? How dare they, I was so young! How could you hurt of child like that?.. Didn’t know it would hurt me later in life? How could you say that to me? How could you put your hands on me like that? … I couldn’t even stick up for myself, and you took advantage of me! Why? I was so innocent! … We end up holding onto the responsibility that was never ours. By forgiving ourselves, and reminding us that it was not our fault. ..We are innocent and happy when that happened, just like, deep down you are now. If you are confused right now in life, when someone you love intentionally hurts you, imagine how you felt when you were a child, and had no worldly experience to how to handle it, or to stop it… Release little one. The little one inside of you. The 3 year old you, the 7 year old you, the 11 year old you… Tell that little one, that it’s ok, they can let it go, it wasn’t their fault.
Get ready to release some of the past..Let’s do a deep breath together, on my count…When you blow out your breath, think to yourself, “I forgive myself.” We are going to breath in for 5 seconds, hold for 3 seconds and blow out for 5 seconds…Ok, ready?…Breath in…1, 2, 3, 4, 5, hold 2,3, blow out I forgive myself 3, 4, 5… One more time…Breath in 2, 3, 4, 5, hold 2, 3, blow out I forgive myself 3, 4, 5 …You did nothing wrong.. Release the past and forgive yourself…Allow yourself to be the person you’ve always wanted to be.
