Meet Your Parts

As you can witness in this candid Internal Family Systems-informed session with Dr. Tom Holmes, getting to know the different parts within us is vulnerable and beautiful. We do, indeed, contain multitudes and the parts holding strong emotional pain, fear, grief, shame, and rage interact with other parts that protect them, judge them, negate them, or advocate for them.

Because we blend with many of these protector parts, we see life through the lens of someone who must not feel old feelings. We project ever present abusers outside of ourselves and play out dynamics of childhood on the stage of our adult lives.

Getting to know these parts is like introducing the members of a cast to one another in broad daylight after they’ve been performing in the dark. But now these parts get to choose their assigned tasks, develop intentional relationships, and get to play instead of carrying huge emotional burdens. But first, we have to get to know them and why what they feel makes sense.
