🧐Have you heard of the inner child?
🌸This is an unconscious part of ourselves that represents childhood experiences, some of which are the product of unresolved relational trauma.
💫By working our parts we can help heal the wounds that we carry. The younger version of the self is the "inner child" part that, is usually protected by some other parts that we have developed over time.
🌻Human beings are not as simple as we would like to think. We are complex systems of interacting "parts" with a variety of emotions & motivations.
↪️Each inner part gets activated at certain times. Some of our parts are in pain, and others want to protect us from feeling that pain. Some try to manage how we interact with people, some are locked in battles with each other. And all this is going on largely outside our conscious awareness. All we know is that sometimes we feel anxious, content, scared, frustrated, happy, etc.
🌸Unpicking these different parts of the Self can help us integrate and learn how to make these parts work together with each other as a harmonious "inner family" that supports your interaction with the world.
🌸Inner parts are natural divisions in the psyche. Sometimes they can be in conflict & sometimes in synchronicity.
This is why you may hear different voices in your mind telling you "apparent" conflicting information.
💫However, part of the therapeutic work is to be able to feel safe enough to listen to the different parts, in order to welcome them, and integrate them with compassion & understanding.

🙋🏼♀️To overcome perfectionism we have to learn to accept reality as it is at any given moment.
🙅🏾A perfectionist rejects the present as not being good enough and gets stuck in a state of perfectionistic dissatisfaction.
🙍🏼♂️To a perfectionist, the presence is absence of what could be.
💫It is time to shift this view and think about the present as presence of all that can be, and an opportunity to be mindfully present with what is 🙏
🌸Make a better tomorrow learning to enjoy and accepting the present of now🌸
💮There is no alternate reality at any given point in time other than the one that we experience. We can think of things being different from how they are, but this ideal reality exists only in our minds.
🌻There is a common narrow understanding of perfection itself. We see it as an ideal state: flawless, error-free, so complete that nothing can be added to make it better. Perfection is seen as a state that is beyond improvement.
↪️Well, here is the paradox, if perfection is a state beyond improvement, then is not every moment, by definition perfect?
💁🏽Yes, the present is already perfect. After all, any given moment of reality is what it is in the sense that it cannot be anything other than what it is "right now".
While we could take the lessons of this moment and try to make the next moment better, this very moment is beyond improvement.
🌻Try to begin to notice the ordinary perfection of the present🌻
🌸Present is Perfect🌸
