🧐 Writer’s Commentary | Inner Child
We continue exploring archetypes. This one needs our collective attention.
I am a guy with a troubled mind. Many people tell me that I am gifted and that I am calm and relaxed, but on the inside, I tell myself that I am not enough, and find it hard to connect with others often because of that. Ten years ago, I found it very hard to accept the love which I direly needed in my life. Today, it is much better, but I am also not under the illusion that there is a simple end to my suffering either. I continue to explore it, and continue to go in spirals where it feels like I am coming back to the same things over and over again. It was frustrating at first, but I am starting to feel that my inner world is becoming more and more familiar.
