Wilt, fall, root, and rise in order to bloom. I imagine each of us are all in one of these stages of our process. Some of you are wilting 🥀 others of you are rising. Many of you are in the beginnings of rooting. . Wherever you may be in this process, these stages require self care and self love. Your attention. . Take a moment right now to check in and see which stage resonates with your current relationship? Your current job or career? Your relationship to yourself? Your relationship to your art? . What does that specific stage ask of you? What does it invite you towards? . Be gentle with yourselves. We are all in this together. Moving from one stage to another. It is always a process.

When I was in treatment, during group therapy, we practiced talking to our “inner child”. My depressed, Over It brain could not take it seriously at all. 😂 It was just so cheesy. Over time, the psychology of it became pretty interesting, and then it became pretty comforting. Like so many of us, I was an odd, lonely kid, and this was a way to sort of be the friend that my younger self never had. To say, “I know you feel like no one understands you, but there’s nothing wrong with you and you’re going to be fine.” Now, whenever I’m being too hard on myself, I often ask myself if I would talk to eight year old me that way, and it usually derails those negative thoughts. Though I still can’t bring myself to use the term, “inner child”, it is a pretty useful practice. #innerchild#depression#mentalhealth#mentalillness#recovery#grouptherapy#psychology
