on self soothing

My Sunday evening curiousity, because I talk to many of my personal development coaching clients about learning to know what we need when our mind, body and soul are not feeling 100%. Self Soothing is an essential skill that many of us only learn to successfully do as adults. Many of our methods to self soothe come from our childhood experiences.

When did you learn to self soothe, and truly understand what you need when feeling down, sad, angry, vulnerable, scared, confronted?

What is it that you crave in these periods to help you feel balanced again?

And what prevents you from taking it out on, or needing support or reactions from others?

Looking forward to your sharing!
