I wasn’t the panicked part pretending to be the confident part anymore.
💕❤️ So glad with all my heart that you are okay.
Very glad you are all okay. This is such a wonderful account of what happens to us when we are feeling scared. I so appreciate your ability to track all the different parts. They are all a part of us. And I’m very glad you learned to look at your own cervix a while back- handy thing, that. Big hug.
I’m so glad all is well and you found your way back to a centered state!!! I never had this exact experience but the emotions take me vividly back to pregnancy and early parenthood. Trusting yourself is always the answer, which I’m still learning!
You are a most amazing person! Not just that you were able to come back to yourself but that you were able to articulate the experience so well that we could understand what you were going through. I am so glad you are okay.
Firstly, I'm so glad you and baby are alright! "I don’t need anyone to check my cervix,” --I viscerally felt those words Finn. Every time I read one of your essays, the words and your heart that pours through them remind me/bring me back into the present with my own body that contains a womb and a cervix that's brought life into this world. Thank you for your presence, Finn.
A harrowing read my friend. So, so relieved that you are ok. Thank you for sharing yourself so vulnerably with us ✨
so glad you're doing okay and thank you for this empowering message about knowing our own bodies. perhaps you didn't mean it to be empowering per se, but it certainly inspires me and reminds me that no one knows my body like i do ---- when i'm able to slow down and remember that.
This is a powerful account of your experience and I thank you for sharing it. The imagery of parts of yourself leaving and then coming back is so vivid, and I understand completely how that feels. Take it easy, Finn.
Good job ♡
Ah, thank you Fion! What a lovely thing to hear about Griever's Ball ~~ not to run an idea into the ground, but it strikes me that *slowing down as the key to remembering* works over there, too ....
Thank you for sharing, and for writing so clearly about the different parts of you , so pleased you were able to recognise them all and come back to yourself. The description of the panicky part and others pretending to be your confident self especially resonated.
Hope you're doing okay
