Life with Phobia: Associations
Words I’ve always used to describe my relationship with fish:
In the last six months, but especially through EMDR I’ve started to associate fish with these words/descriptions:
Unsafe (to be a fish is to be unsafe)
Homeward (fish have an understanding of ‘home’)
Womb (womb experience as an aquatic being)
The second list feels like freedom compared to the first list; there’s understanding. I see the disowned parts of myself in fish. I see myself in fish.
