A term we sometimes use in my house, when we need to withdraw is “ I just need to be alone in the cave”. It describes times when I can feel sad or sorry for myself.

Rather than beating myself up, I give myself time and permission to do so.

It provides an opportunity to switch gears and wallow for a while. I know that I will come out of it as I have an awareness of this being part of my own processes of being human.

Do you need some time in the cave?
