Break the Cycle

A remarkable book I just finished, Sickened: The True Story of a Lost Childhood, by Julie Gregory, tells in painful detail about how much of one child's life energy ws frozen in an attempt to survive an impossible situation. 

This book vividly highlights just how dependent children are. As an adult it takes many difficult years for this damaged child to reclain her own life and disentangle herself from her own life-preseving responses to this pervasive trauma. 

As children we trust, love and want to obey. We have little concelpt of any way to experince the world ouside the one our parents believe in and explain to us.

In Julie's case, her mother defined her as sick when she was not. Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. Even in much less toxic situations parents who carry scars from their own pasts often can't provide the resources their children need. And so the cycle continues. 

We each need to reclaim the energy we used to protect ourselves. The process shared in Letting It Go helps each user reclaim the energy frozen in the struggle to get what we need in the world.  

This paragraph is a comment I wrote about a passage on page 35 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®.)

You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to Bublish.com where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book.
