Lately, I've been struggling with trying to reassure myself, or my "Little self" whenever I do regress into a younger headspace. Despite the fact that I am already struggling getting into that headspace and trying to stay in it, once I am actually in it, I am overwhelmed with these thoughts of "Is it okay for me to be like this?" or "Is it okay for me to act like this and to want reassurance and comfort?"
It's hard to articulate how I feel, but once I'm in that headspace, it almost feels wrong sometimes. Not wrong in the sense of "I shouldn't feel or act like this" but more wrong in the sense of "Do I deserve to be in a safe space like this and to temporarily forget about everything?". I guess you could say that a lot of it stems from my lack of self-worth and other things, but I was wondering if others experienced a similar situation like this or know how to deal with it.
I should also say that I am a little in secret and that no one knows about it, nor do I have a CG. I guess its natural to want some reassurance from time to time, but without that "support" around me, I've found it really hard to reassure myself.
