Morning everyone. I'm currently on day 370. Of no PMO, and right now I feel like I've been concentrating alot on my inner child. And establishing a closer relationship with him. And I'm realizing alot about myself lately. In every single relationship. Romantic and non romantic I always felt like I had to morph into what I thought the other person wanted me to be. I always wanted everyone to like me so badly that I was constantly hiding my real self. Now I'm learning that the most important person I want to like me ... Is me. And I'm finding the best way to do that. Is this ; Sit in a dark room, close your eyes and pay attention inward. What do you feel ? Is there an uncomfortable " black hole feeling " in your chest ? That is your inner child ! With broken bones, bruises, bloody cuts, stuffed in a dark, cold, wet cave. He feels so hurt, alone, scared, and ignored. And everytime you try and distract yourself from that uncomfortable black hole feeling whether it be from porn, drugs , or even. Something as simple as scrolling aimlessly through your phone when you're bored. You are ignoring that poor , injured , scared 3-5 year old self. And everytime you distract yourself from his pain he sees that you're ignoring him . And it only solidifies his feelings of hurt, not good enough , loneliness , fear . Take some time and be with that black hole feeling , and know that everytime you are with that feeling. You're little inner child sees that you are looking at him , and paying attention to him . Visualize that, talk to him, reassure that you see him, and you're there for him now. Protect him. And stand up for him. And show him the love that he may have never felt before or never felt like he deserved. The more you do this , your inner child will learn, heal, and slowly start to feel safe may e for the first time in your life. I know this may seem like nonsense , or jibberish to some, but I hope it resonates with some! Have weekend everyone !
