You mixed? Me too.
Being biracial or mixed comes with it's own...um....unique challenges. You get it. I'm trained in attachment therapy which usually means our attachments with other people. Those are very important. But what about our attachments within ourselves? What's our relationship like with our whiteness? With our blackness? What happens to those parts when they are told "You aren't ____ enough" for this group or that? Well, attachment wounds happen. If those wounds are not tended to they can end up running the show in our lives. They make choices about the spaces we show up in, the relationships we have and how we view ourselves and our worth. Let's give those wounds some loving attention. No matter how much you want to talk about racial identity in session or not, you'll at least know your therapist gets it and has your back.
