YOUR GROWTH IS NOT THE ABANDONMENT OF OTHERS
From Your Point of YOU!
Consider that childhood is defined by having very little if ANY circumstances in which we were in your control, had any say or power. The difference between a child and an adult isn't the age or even the so called lack of maturity or the impressive miles on your soul.Â It's having choice. Period.
And because to be a child is to have no real choice in anything , you may have "forgotten" or never considered that to have choices, to feel empowered, to really be mature comes from being taught, modeled, informed, and most of all considered ... enough. Enough because you exist. Period.
The best indicator of a child's well being, is a parent's Self-understanding.
What you may not have emotionally understood is that your power comes from your you. Your Self. Â Why? because your caretakers (as was theirs and theirs before them) were unaware of the one thing whichÂ everyoneÂ in childhood needs and almost never receives. - Experiencing their parents as confident, imperfect but willing to see themselves as worthy.
Without knowing that this is the fundamental ingredient in the formation of someone's Self : Their Worth, each generation continues to pass on, perpetuates, encourages the loss of so much opportunity to thrive in a Self-satisfying life.
