“Be the person you needed when you were younger”- Ayesha A. Siddiqi
We all have needs that we once relied on others to meet. We longed for someone to guide and love us through the confusion and experiences of our youth. If we perceive these needs were not met, pain often occurs, which outlasts the experience. The needs remain, impaired by the notion that they will always go unfulfilled. That is when it is necessary to transform your pain into present fulfillment by letting go of the hurt caused by those once unable to be there for you. You must see that there is no longer a need to count on others when you can become your own healer.
What kind of person did you wish would have helped you when you were younger? How can you soothe your unmet needs by adopting those qualities in yourself?
