Really difficult piece for me. I’ll probably read it again. When I think of my childhood, I don’t often think of play — I didn’t do a lot of it. I am an only child, and I experienced a lot of trauma as a child that has left me in adulthood feeling like I didn’t really experiencing being a child. And I wasn’t around kids a whole lot, so they make me uncomfortable now — I didn’t relate to them when I was a kid myself, and it’s even more difficult for me to relate to them now. I’ve been doing a bit of inner child work lately, and it has been painful and revealing. I still have a lot of work to do. Anyway, I found this article interesting and thought provoking. Thank you for sharing it. ❤
