Learn to love your Inner Child

Hello Friends

In this post I talk to my 6 year old self. I tell her what her future will bring and how proud I have become to walk by her side.

My name was Sheilah then, not Serena. Yes, that’s confusing for me as well: my parents changed my name when I was around 11 years of age but that’s the subject of a different post entirely!)

I have 3 key messages for my 6 year old self:
  1. I want to hold you so close and soothe you and learn to love you.
  2. I am so proud of your achievements: you went to university, you are intelligent, you have founded a company, you help others.
  3. You have a husband who loves you. Purely, and simply.


Do listen to the audio—as ever, it wasn’t scripted; and I hope it helps you or inspires you to write to your inner child as well. If you do write a similar letter, or if you have already done so, I invite you to share your experiences with me and the Community.


PS Laura shares a letter she wrote to her inner child in November 2015: https://blackspotsite.com/2015/11/05/a-letter-to-my-11-year-old-self/comment-page-1/#comment-1172

    I love seeing your picture at such a young age, and it saddens me to think of all you went through at that age. It is amazing how strong she was and that you are her now and are also so strong. You are courageous! Thanks for finding my blog, because I am thrilled to find yours.


    1. Likewise Lisa. There’s a lot of talk about social media preventing “real” communication. Yet I’m finding that blogging is a marvellous way to meet genuine people who share so much with one another.

        Same here. It’s so easy to connect with people who actually read what you write and care.


  2. Lovely letter to your six year old self.

    This is really moving. I am so glad you’ve learned to love that child, it is heart warming to hear. I wrote to my inner child a while back. It was a really hard thing to do. Even harder to read aloud when I shared it with my therapist. The letter is here if you’d like to read it. https://blackspotsite.com/2015/11/05/a-letter-to-my-11-year-old-self/ Laura.
