It is poignant to notice when we express something true about ourselves, an intense fear of abandonment will follow soon after. Most of us abandon our uniqueness in childhood, and the individuality that remains often gets crushed down during the peer pressure of our teen years. And, we might not realize how much socialization has the power to repress our truthful expression long after we have grown up.
If we were to look at our life honestly, we would see that we have been rewarded for being inauthentic for most of our lives. One of our greatest fears is that if we truly express who we were created to be, we will be alone. Because we are "socialized" early, we can grow into teens and adults who do or say anything to feel accepted. As we move towards expressing our authenticity, we often fear social rejection. Yet, Creation always finds ways to pinpoint, celebrate and encourage our unique truth."
"All of the fractured parts of our mind have their own logic and thought systems. They want different things, and they are expressions of different personalities.
They have different goals because they think different things will make us happy. Some of these parts are emotionally arrested or stunted from the trauma that caused the fracture. There is not one inner child, there are many, and they are all emotionally arrested." ~ Chuck Spezzano
