An Edge

By Mac Guerreiro

One of the fun things about embarking on the journey of integration and inner child work is getting to meet new aspects of yourself that managed to hide so well, you had no idea they were there. This recently happened in relation to an aspect of myself that is truly, highly competitive. First re-awakened while on a date at an arcade, she now refuses to go back to sleep. She eagerly reminds me of the days in which my cousin and eye would compete over everything and the sweet feeling that came along with being the best fill-in-the-blank.

How does she come into play now? (No pun intended 😏). There’s this subconscious sensation of consistently comparing myself to others. Of course, on the flip side, there’s this push to do things to the best of my abilities. Eye strive to balance these two forces that seem to be flowing around the competitive complex. My personal strategy is to remind myself that it’s not that serious. The sun will rise, things will go on and your feelings will ebb and flow as they always do when they’re allowed to be fully felt.

Much of my journey in this point in time is unlearning the people-pleasing behaviors that got me to adulthood. Friendly competition is a great way to exercise that muscle in a low-stake situation. Eye’m thrilled to have met this little lady inside that’s full of fire and eye intend on working with her to help her bring the most she can to this life experience.

Thank you for reading, listening and watching; it means the world to me.
