I have listened to this so many times now. The lyrics, music, emotions, fragility in her voice, and even the child-like way Sia is herself, I relate to deeply, and this allows me to acknowledge, comfort and feel my very hurt inner child and feel safe to do so.
I have spent a long time trying to suppress this part of me, trying to be tougher than I actually am.
To acknowledge that vulnerable, hurt child-like part of me, has always felt deeply unsafe, because all my vulnerability has led to me being hurt in the worst possible ways, by so many people, all of whom, I should have been able to trust.
That core level fear I feel, and my highly developed protection system, normally never allows vulnerability and avoids it at all costs.
I know I need to have safe times and environments, when I can be the vulnerable, fragile girl I am. And times to be the strong, courageous, wise, open woman of integrity I also am.
