Do your emotions get in your way? Are there times when there is a battle on the inside? When our inner parts are at peace and when they all feel safe and supported we can be our true selves. There is no better gift to give ourselves and our friends. By knowing our parts we know ourselves by and healing our parts we feel good about who we are.
