It is amazing to watch the play out and the timing. It was likely the Facebook post that triggered (pun intended) the 11 year old to come out. The Gun fight is appropriate. I liked when her parts first showed up, that they were armed but didn’t want to fight. We don’t have to fight. Fighting rarely gets us the results we are looking for. When we feel armed, that is enough. I can fight if I have to, if I want to, but I would rather keep MY peace. That’s a move in the right direction, when we can protect ourselves, provide safety for ourselves, and choose peace. Our strong parts can defend our sweet parts. Our angry parts can inspire our strong parts to show up for our system. All parts are welcome. There is a time and a place for anger, but it doesn’t have to do the talking NOR the decision making. That is power, that is self love.
