#fridayFunny from @Resetwithrenee social media pages.

Triggers, trailheads, activation, spiraling, dysregulation, blended, hijacked…. all words to describe something that happens to all of us in life ….” growth opportunities”.  

In twelve step slang, this is a “FGO” – A FUCKING GROWTH OPPORTUNITY!

In this state, through the #ifs lens, you are taken over by a part – some aspect of you becomes bigger than the core of who you are which #ifs calls “Self Leadership”. 

In Self Leadership you will feel:

  • Calm
  • Confident
  • Clear
  • Curious
  • Compassionate
  • Creative
  • Confident
  • Connected

Good stuff.

When you are NOT in the state of Self Leadership, you will feel taken over by an intense emotion, body sensation, thought, memory of the past or projection into the future. 

In my work with #ctpsdsurvivors our goal is to locate & increase Self Energy while also getting to know:

  • the parts of them that try to prevent bad things from happening (MANAGER PARTS).
  • the parts that carry hurts, injuries, & wounds (EXILE PARTS).
  • the parts that react & get them in trouble (FIREFIGHTER PARTS).

Bringing harmony to all parts is the goal of healing & integration.  This healing work involves connecting internally, witnessing, & unburdening. 

Parts mapping is a tool that helps some organize their inner world.  For others, it is an opportunity to stay in their head & “figure it out” while avoiding feeling/connecting “below the neck”. 

Remember, there are no bad parts.  Whatever way they show up in your internal or external world, they are trying to help you, even if it doesn’t feel that way.
