Against my own fears of being labeled psycho, I will write about the parts work I have begun doing openly with my counselor. I have always believed I have been working on separate parts of me in my life’s day to day adventure. I haven’t fully identified my core Self. I do believe in my writing to the little girl I have spoken out of my core Self. I believe at the very core of Self I am protective over all my other parts, just like I am with Tien. The must trying aspect of working in parts is not having an awareness of who (the other parts) are. There was a time I remember quite vividly what I believe to be my parts speaking to my core Self. They said, “I don’t think she knows we’re here.” Scary, huh? Think about how I felt. I felt confused, relieved and crazy all wrapped up into what we call me. When speaking about parts of me, I have a distinct awareness there are other parts of me. I believe that to be true more and more after hearing about not knowing there’s others. I do not know where my therapist will go with my parts’ stories, but I do feel relieved she believes I have many parts that make up me.
