An inner child. An inner critic. A warrior. A pessimist. The self who pleases and accommodates others. The self who rebels. The self who is afraid. The self who gets things done. The self who is stuck.
Each self has a gift. Each self has wisdom. We can give each self a voice.
As we embrace and listen to all our selves, we can learn to invoke the ones we need when we need them. We can understand our behavior and our feelings. We can have more agency, more choice.
