So if I visualized that part of me, it would be a dark gray sphere with a fuzzy boundary with the word "IS" written on it in white letters. The "is" represents its desire to have its existence acknowledged by the rest of us. So that's why I'm calling him "Izzy." He's my dark emotions.
Now, Izzy can be at the table with Big Cant and Little Cant and maybe we can go from 3 to 2 to 1 of us.
it's good to meet you, Izzy. i've only briefly glimpsed Little Can't. but i feel like i know Big Can't pretty well and he seems like a great guy. i hope you and LC will become more and more at home here and we'll all have the priviledge of knowing you all better.
"the scariest thing about abuse of any shape or form, is, in my opinion, not the abuse itself, but that if it continues it can begin to feel commonplace and eventually acceptable."
