Childhood trauma is a funny thing, and I can say that, because like most people who have lived through it know, dissociating is not just a learned behavior. It’s survival. Someone very special made me these cardboard wings to remind me of a story I’ve told many times. How I had cardboard wings I lived in, slept in and wore till they could no longer be taped up or stuck together. I believed I could fly, I believed I was special. I believed I was indestructible or at least I was, as long as I had my wings on. As adults there are many ways to escape, numb or work through trauma, but as a child you are blessed with the two most powerful things, innocence and an imagination. The wings I had, were my escape, in the world I created as my reality. There comes a time when that child becomes an adult where being strong is easy, because it’s all you were allowed to be, but being vulnerable can feel like you might die. That is because as an adult you ARE strong, you have already spent the most fragile times of your life being so..some might say you’re the strongest person they know. Yet, we take our inner child everywhere we go, and at some point we need to heal that child and love that child and let them know, we can take it from here. Thank them for everything they did for you to be who you are today, but in doing so you must step up to be the protector and let them be the innocent child with the beautiful imagination. I made some adjustments to the wings tonight, to include the tape and the cracks, and a letter to that little girl so she knows that I know there would be no such thing as the last picture if she hadn’t fought so hard… but also to thank her and let her know she can stop fighting now. She can just be a beautiful little girl.
