"The idea behind dissociation is that we put away our pain for another day, a day when we are stronger, have a more developed brain and solid coping mechanisms."
"Parenting will be the toughest work because it is so pervasive in your
life. Where many adult relationships may offer the occasional trigger,
your relationship with your children mirrors your inner child. You are
literally staring your inner child in the face every time you address
your children. The triggers are endless. The good news is that
children are flexible, loving and willing to be vulnerable. They are
most likely to change and help you change. In other words, we can
learn so much from them."
