Development Of The Inner Child: A New Revelation

This week, I am a bit short on time, with a lot of busy things going on that are taking my attention in many different directions. Unfortunately, that means that my post this week is going to be a bit short, too (I am falling asleep on the computer over here as I type).

I am learning quite a lot over here currently about letting go of a tendency of mine that I have recently begun to see as extremely childish: being overly sensitive to other people’s moods, usually equating a perceived change in them as something directed towards me. This thought usually leads me to constantly want to ask them what is going on, or if they are okay, etc.

I was recently given the opportunity to do something different, so I did. I decided not to harbor ideas of what another person could possibly be thinking or feeling about me, decided that maybe it has nothing to do with me, and that I am just going to carry on as if nothing is really different and to focus instead on just being more of myself and letting that shine through. To let things answer themselves.

If you are following my cryptic explanation, I felt this experience as a profound shift in the development of my inner child. I could see this behavior of mine, the insatiable need to fix something I think I may have done wrong but could have done nothing, as akin to being in the ego stage of Freud’s psychoanalytic theory. In other words, still a child. So I parented the child, and could instantly feel a difference in myself. Much more peace and genuineness, no more worry or need to seek resolution.

Anyway, since I already said that this week’s post would be short, I guess the moral of this story is: there is always time to learn something in life. I think today I just finally opened myself up to listening when the opportunity was speaking to me, despite my busy day and busy mind. Sometimes we don’t know everything, and then we learn something new that feels like a bright light has been cast in front of us, making the way in front of us shine clearly, and sometimes that feels really good.

Have you had an experience like that before? How did you handle your sudden awareness of the situation: did you change it, or ignore it? How has that realization of a possible opportunity to learn changed your life, it at all? Please leave a comment in the space below; we’d love to hear from you!
