"Her core pastimes were pining after unavailable men and drinking wine." Yep, that sounds familiar ;-) Loving these thoughts btw, resonating with many of them and the way they meander... xo

Amazingly, this sounds very familiar of what I hear in my mind. 29 was a really tough year for me to accept, forgive, and love myself through to healing.

I agree with you. It's interesting that people come to realize everything at this age. Clearly, everyone comes to it differently, and it depends on many factors, but don't you think it most often happens at age 27 or 30?

Yes, loved this! I also spent 30 minutes changing my Substack layout this morning!

This is sooo relatable! πŸ˜… Told my to do list to get in the sea today and put my feet up with a cup of tea. Then shared a Thread on Substack on a whim. πŸ˜†πŸ™ˆ ✨

I feel like you transcribed my thoughts exactly! I wake up at night so often with my mind swirling in circles. A new book would be wonderful to read!!!

Dear lord, are you ME?!

Loving these thoughts, I can resonate with so many of them! Funny how we fully embrace and love the child in us, but it’s so difficult to do the same for the messed up, lost young adult version...and she actually needs so much love - at least in my case xx

Absolutely. Young adult me needs a lot of love from me now, it's something I want to give some time and energy too ❀️

This part really stuck out to me too. There's so much talk about the inner child but there are many other versions of ourselves that need love, and perhaps sometimes more than the child version of ourselves. Definitely something for me to explore in my journal... I'm thinking my 20-something yo self and my early 30yo self may have been trying to hang out with me and chat for a long while now...

Yes!! This is something i'm going to explore in my new inner child course (and that's not a plug 🀣) xx

That's right, by devoting time only to the younger Sabrina, I'm neglecting the teenage Sabrina. But she feels like she needs more love, and so on.

Reading your thoughts was so helpful Susannah, thank you. I'm often thinking those first two. Life can feel hard some days. I can't shake depression at the moment, almost worse when it's sunny as feel I should go out! Perhaps I'll look at tarot decks instead!!

It has never occurred to me before to communicate with any of my adult selves. I think there's definitely a book for you to write about that. I would like to hold the hand of my fragile 25 year old self and tell her it's all going to be OK.

So true! Something abour loving your adult self would be really needed!

Me too. Some serious healing to be find in spending time with some of my adult selves I think.

So relatable and poetic in a way. My mind has been swirling in endless loops of wondering what to even name my substack and whether it needs to be different from my business name.πŸŒͺ️

I just spent 30 minutes trying to post a video on IG. Where does the time go? I love the rambling of your mind. It brings me great comfort that I am not alone.

"Did I break my own heart?" - excuse me while I go and blub for a while!! Thank you for feeling able to share this little insight into your mind. It feels comforting to know others have complete mind-melts when there's no need at all! Ha. Good ol' us eh <3

I get you. Your questions resonate deeply. The more I learn about my brain, the more I understand how I feel = perpetually scattered and exhausted. I've let go of easier. I think it only gets different because of the choices I "try" to make daily (e.g., to-do lists everywhere, consistent exercise, boundaries, managing my convergent and divergent thinking, lots of compassion, self-care, play/creativity, etc. All of these choices, and more, help me, and my inner child, feel, function, and live better. And, it's still a vast, dense, often lonely, wilderness.

How I understand you. I can't articulate what I want to say, but my thoughts are similar to yours.
