"Much good advice here. I know for myself, I finally realized that my parents were human and therefore flawed. They did the best they knew how to raise me. I had become an adult and realized any issues I had were now for me to work out. I'm not…"

"I echo Will here; in my experience with the Mankind Project I realized what I long suspected; the little boy I so tried to leave behind was still there. My visits to this left-behind part of me have been draining and almost traumatic, and I shudder…"

"Thanks for the comment, Will.  Sounds like you've described my inner child to a T!  Even though it is a 'child', it still has incredibly powerful abilities to influence my relationships, my attitudes, and my life."

Tyler Jacobs replied to Jesse Williams's discussion Abandoning the Hurt Boy and Becoming a Man
"I had a similar thought, Will but you phrased it much better. Never abandon a hurt child even if it's your inner child.  Care for him, help him heal, but don't let him control your life."

"We are influenced by so many things but our minds must rule the day. You have legitimate feelings, seem to have rooted out their source, and can see their effect. Of those three, you can not stop feeling, you can not change the past, so all that is…"

"We talk about issues like this a lot in ManKind Project.  Drop by the AoM group "New Warriors" for more about what we do. I can tell you my own experience.  That hurt boy within has been abandoned before, expects it now, and as…"

Rick Shelton replied to Jesse Williams's discussion Abandoning the Hurt Boy and Becoming a Man
"We all carry the child we were with us and it's hard to overcome that child no matter what your age.  I can honestly tell you that there is not a man alive or that has been alive that did not, at one point or another, become the child for…"

"Have you ever read Iron John? It looks at many of the same issues.  For a more practical take there's also "Hold on to your NUTS" which is more self help but isn't my favourite book."
