My book of poetry, "Stripping- My fight to find Me" is a story of the triumph of the human spirit. It is a story of our deep need for connection and the infinite power of love to heal.

I am energy. I am infinity. But I am also a poet, author, artist. wife, mother, sleep doctor, and attachment and complex childhood trauma survivor. I healed only when I understood I was broken, not a victim. I learnt that everything I needed was within me. And that my inner life was the essence and driving force of my existence.

Where did Self Love Self Care First® come from?

I needed to find meaning in my suffering so I kept thinking, “What truth did I come out of this journey with? How can I share what I know in forms other than what I receive through my poetry? What is the most foundational and fundamental truth about human existence that I discovered to be true in my suffering? That is where SLSCF® comes from.

I discovered that if we do not know our truth, we cannot love ourselves. The pain and suffering of our lives, the false external messages about life, success and achievement that we receive, and the projections and imposed expectations of others we are subjected to, mangle our truth, distract us from our destined path, and cut deep into our body, mind, and soul. They cause us to not pay attention to ourselves, and to how we live our lives. These feelings and beliefs descend into our unconscious and become habitual patterns that hijack our lives.

SelfLoveSelfCareFirst® is the journey of truthful self-examination and acceptance of our truth. Only when we are ready to find value, love, and compassion for our true selves do we begin to live free.

This blog is a celebration of love, stillness, growth, joy, discovery, and the truth. The conversation is honest, the topics are varied, the perspectives are from many angles, but the common thread weaving the discussions together is Self Love Self Care First®.

You are not moving towards any light. There is no light out there. It is inside you. You must move inwards- not outwards to look for it. No one can guide you there. Only you can give yourself the permission to embark on this journey. Only you can reclaim yourself.

Your freedom is in your hands.

Alice Miller's 'The Drama of The Gifted Child'- An Opportunity to Examine our Life


It's Sunita here.

Once I read Alice Miller's book, 'The Drama of The Gifted Child' I wondered why this book is not required reading for every adult before they choose to become a parent. Instead of all the other baby books out there, I believe, this is the seminal read for any human being who desires, and aims to be a loving parent to a baby.

It is however, a very difficult read for those of us who may have suffered as a child. Because it is raw, honest, and descriptive, with tremendous clarity of how damage is done to children- in most cases, with no intention of doing so.

But it also is tremendously empowering to such individuals by outlining how to get out of the invisible prison of our childhood.

I offered this material to myself as a resource to start understanding my pain and dysfunction as an adult. It was immensely helpful in gaining a contextual understanding of the source of much of what was not working in my life. The 'Drama of The Gifted Child' helped me make sense of what I unconsciously felt, but had no language to express it with.

I offer it to you in case you are ready to take steps to do the work necessary for you to live free and whole.

The choice to get on that journey can only be made by you.

So, what say you?

Until next time,
Moving forwards,
