Comment on Emotional Abuse by Lisa https://susannabarlow.com/healing/emotional-abuse/comment-page-1/#comment-41879 Fri, 13 Jan 2017 12:55:09 +0000 http://susannabarlow.com/?p=1718#comment-41879 Thank you for writing this. There has always been a gap in my understanding regarding the effects of the emotional abuse I experienced as a child. However, as you explained so eloquently, since there was no physical or sexual abuse, I could never understand why I felt many of the emotions you described (extreme denial, not being able to directly access my emotions, having little self worth, etc…). Reading this helped me put the pieces together! Thank you, thank you!!

Comment on Understanding the Victim Archetype by Tiffany https://susannabarlow.com/on-archetypes/understanding-the-victim-archetype/comment-page-1/#comment-41877 Fri, 13 Jan 2017 10:05:19 +0000 http://susannabarlow.com/?p=1836#comment-41877 Hello! Thank you so much – I’m finding your sensitivity and personal experience with the victim and wounded child to be incredibly helpful. Not just for myself but my students and friends.
I have never identified myself with the wounded child, and I have been studying archetypes for at least 6 years. ! Only these days, and my marriage is coming undone, that I see the wounded child holding on for dear life. It’s incredibly painful, but wonderfully rewarding. Thank you so much for helping yourself – and spreading that to others. Deeply appreciated.

Comment on Understanding the Hero Archetype by Susanna https://susannabarlow.com/on-archetypes/understanding-the-hero-archetype/comment-page-1/#comment-41830 Sat, 07 Jan 2017 02:08:12 +0000 http://susannabarlow.com/?p=2221#comment-41830 Lia, thanks for your comments. I am only adding another dimension to the female hero archetypes that already exist, including the sexual/fighter hero. It’s already been done and I am only exploring other aspects of the female hero that are less appreciated and valued. Women can be much more than the expectations that society would place on us. My point with this article is to push the boundaries outward allowing more versions of female heroism. There are many forms of the hero and I only expressed the possibility that gentle and open can also be heroic. Thanks again for your comments.

Why do women have to be vulnerable and family-oriented? Why can’t we enjoy being highly sexual? Your article is filled with the assumption that I am deluded and unfulfilled because I don’t fit the new soft hero stereotype. Surely archetypes should be used to expand people’s options, not limit them?

Comment on The Five Stages of Emotional Healing by Pain is How the Healing Process Starts but It's Not the End of the Story - WARRIORS ON PURPOSE https://susannabarlow.com/healing/the-five-stages-of-emotional-healing/comment-page-1/#comment-41720 Fri, 30 Dec 2016 00:16:36 +0000 http://susannabarlow.com/?p=2823#comment-41720 […] This usually continues until a level of healing occurs that allows me to experience peace more than … I usually feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger than I did before and I feel like whatever problem or trauma it was that I was processing has been dealt with. This can take days, weeks, months, or years to happen, but it does happen whenever I am willing to go out on a limb, experience pain and allow God to heal my wounds. […]

Comment on Understanding the Martyr Archetype by Claudia A. https://susannabarlow.com/on-archetypes/understanding-the-martyr-archetype/comment-page-1/#comment-41605 Wed, 21 Dec 2016 19:05:51 +0000 http://susannabarlow.com/?p=1691#comment-41605 Susanna, Thank you for your thorough description of the martyr archetype. I have been reading other authors but yours was very helpful. I have been an excellent martyr/victim in my friendships with women, needing their validation and recongition as I am hungry for that. In 2017 I intend to start looking at my distorted relationship to self that underlies this need. It helped me to read the qualities of the “enlightened martyr” because in that, I actually found an “out” with regards to my shadow side. I have a girlfriend whom I let use me, at beck and call for anything she needed (schoolwork, writing letters, helping her here or there, cooking for her). She calls, I come running. It never felt right. I am changing that now, but will do so slowly, to free myself of the need for her recognition. Thank you for putting your clear thoughts on paper. Claudia
