"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." ― C.G. JungHumans have been trying to interpret their dreams since the dawn of time. Witches, medicine men, shamans, and everyday people with good imaginations were reading meaning into our dreams long before the father of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud and famed psychiatrist Carl Jung began using them to analyze our unconscious minds.
Ones upon a time there was a little girl. She loved her mommy very much, but she could never be sure that her mother also loved her.
When she felt sad and longed for a cuddle, her mommy was too busy to comfort her.
"Stop bothering me, little one; you have nothing to be sad about."
”Never lose a holy curiosity.” – Albert Einstein
Are you going on with your ”normal life” while the pain of a toxic relationship with your mother tears you apart.
You keep on putting one foot in front of the other like a zombie, not dead but not living either. Barely hanging on, gasping for a breath of fresh air.
And all you want is to be free to live your life and be happy.
The time will come when you will return to places that caused you pain in the past, but you will feel good. When emotional trauma heals, the scars remain, but they don't hurt.
I returned from a trip to Moscow (not Minnesota or Texas but Russia!) – the city where I grew up.
