My life is stuck in many aspects, including having a depression for years. It feeIs like I can never have what I want. I want to feel proud of my life instead and have a loving relationship.
Session 1: Connecting to inner self
I realized that the different inner parts that were in conflict could actually work together. It was a very powerful moment, I could feel it physically. The right answers are within me. To access them, I can connect with my body, create a listening space, be patient and trusting that the creative part wants to cooperate with me.
Session 2: Depression & nothing works
I connected to an inner part "nothing works". I learned that it has a good intention to use depression as a way to secure important things like "the freedom to be my true self ". This part is not ready at the moment to let go of the depression until better alternatives "to live life on my own terms" are secured.
Session 3: Self love
I often heard that you need to love yourself, but didn't know how to do it. There is a part of me that feels "nobody wants to love me." I was able to connect with her and give her some love, after several moments of resistance. It gets slightly easier with day by day repetition.
Session 4: Shame resolution
After the exercise, I could not experience anymore the shame attached to a very shameful experience. It was so unbelievable that I thought "I made it up". A week later I got triggered by somebody into shame. Within ten minutes, I was able to apply what I learned and free myself from the shame feeling.
