To Shrink – Or not to Shrink?

DISCLAIMER:
For purposes of utmost chastity towards them, I will refrain from mentioning their verified designation.

They have this inkling to associate ANYTHING traumatic with your INNER CHILD

– oooooooh
That makes me sick!!!!!!!!!!

Not everyone was neglected as a child
Some of us enjoyed our upbringing
Some of us had AND STILL HAVE the ability to deal with and address problems as and when they arise
I don’t need to connect with that “scared 7-year-old little child”
Who TF said that I was seven years old then ~BHAMM! – jumped straight to 30-something?

They try to get you to forfeit all the years in-between and reach out to a memory of a tarnished, make-belief little kid

Come the fuck on!

Do you know why I’m at your consulting room hey, shrink?
Hmm
Wanna know why I’m here?

My life sucks right now!

I’m being subjected to workplace mobbing!
YES
My 30-something year old self gets bullied at my job
NO!  I can’t stand up for myself, I’ll get fired!
I have to snort the debris that they hand out – seeing as though we’re all currency chasing
We have to pay funds for residing on this planet
There’s nowhere else for us to go (yea, yea – space programs promote a contrary narrative) – but you’re missing the point

Another thing, we are P R E S E N T L Y being abused by our romantic cohorts

“just pack up and leave”
Haaa
Haaa
Haaa, let’s all laugh together

People who haven’t experienced domestic abuse have no fucking idea what it’s like
They haven’t the slightest apprehension of how you’re gradually beaten into submission
I don’t mean singularly being battered and bruised with fists and weapons –
OH no…
It’s not always physical BEATINGS
Abuse victims will tell you, the abuse didn’t stem from on fortuitous event
It happened progressively
There’s so much to discuss about that, we’ll dive nose-first into that one later
For now, we’re telling these conformist helpers who you pay an hourly rate to… that the CURRENT ABUSE hurts and damages one’s dignity

You’ve sought their counsel as a means to cope with your existing trauma, right!

You can tell that I'm mad hey?
The tone here isn't my usual, mellow vibes
I'm mad for being misunderstood
Mad because I know that someone else can relate, but can't exactly express it

I’m telling you
That YOU will get thru the shit
You don’t require an endorsement from someone who had to learn via a textbook how to navigate through and around trauma
YOU – the subject – have first hand experience
You’ve tried the generic “talk to a professional” approach

You are the professional
You are the survivor
You are the brave one
You are the ‘illuminated

You and your inner however-old-self that you are

You know yourself better than anyone else does
Remember that, okay

Just to recap:
My past cannot hurt me
– It doesn’t exist
My today is a pain in the ass
The right here, right now is the only real time
Tomorrow is non-existent
Yesterday doesn’t exist either
If they don’t have tools to guide you through your present moment, don’t let them fabricate thoughts and memories of a time that doesn’t exist and CANNOT be changed

    Can I simply just say what a comfort to discover somebody that actually understands what they are discussing on the internet.

    You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people must look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you surely possess the gift.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog
    that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for
    something relating to this.
