Something I come to realise more and more, having taken myself to a safe place and averted a major crisis but really all the work that got me here was psychological. Right before he went on holiday, my therapist inisisted in taking me right back to basics, stressing over and over the importance of safety, listening to the little ones, noticing when they don’t feel safe and doing what they need to make them feel safe again. No matter what. I didn’t understand at the time, the session is a memory blur and I thought I took nothing in. I didn’t know why we were going back to basics and I didn’t know why he was suggesting I might be at risk. And then, the last two weeks happened… and I have never understood MORE the reason for my therapist’s constant emphasis on safety and particularly internal safety. Because I was in crisis. And I was safe. A few months ago, this was not the case. Crisis, yes. Safe, hell no!
