exile

Vulnerable parts: these sensitive parts are your exiles. They’re the parts of you holding distressing feelings and/or beliefs. For instance, it’s very common to have a part that believes it is not good enough. It has been shamed, and carries that burden. These parts are often young and frozen in the past; for example, a kid who was repeatedly told they were a disappointment at eight years old can get stuck at that age. Managers parts may decide that the best way to protect this kid is to always be perfect so they don’t get criticized again.
