Thank you to family psychotherapist and social worker Virginia Satir (1916 – 1988):

The Five Freedoms:

1) The freedom to see and hear what is here, instead of what “should” be, was, or will be.

2) The freedom to say what you feel and think, instead of what you “should” feel and think.

3) The freedom to feel what you feel, instead of what you “ought” to feel.

4) The freedom to ask for what you want, instead of always waiting for permission.

5) The freedom to take risks on you own behalf, instead of choosing to be only “secure”.

A capricorn horse. Creative dreamer, over thinker. bpd, insecure attachment and any other labels for deep and chronic wounds and other gifts of brilliance that propel intense and eclectic lives and make for good art. We are high needs and high return, all the way, all the way. Surrender, integration, repair, rebuild, connect, create, evolve. Deeply.
