We have been through so much. Almost died how many times? We’ve been hurt, abandoned and survived and now they come up with this 60’s scoop settlement and somehow we will get through that too.
I am going to ask you to take care of the hurt inner child during this time. Take care of your inner child like you should have been cared for. Feed them good food when they are hungry, let them know they are safe, you’re on the watch dog duty and are going to make sure that they are safe. It is not like before, when anything and everything could happen, because you are now the adult and your inner child can rely on you to take good care of them.
Make sure you listen to your inner child. Sometimes, you get so busy and distracted you forget to feed your inner child. Slow down and explain what is happening, think it through than make a decision that is made with your wellbeing in mind.
Maybe it is time to get your inner child an ice cream or a treat and that is ok too.
Parent your inner child the way you wanted to be parented. Let them know, they are loved, wanted and safe. On your watch, all needs will be met and then some.
