Often the low points in life send our playful-selves into hiding. Inviting ourselves to play anyway, invites our system to regain a balanced, integrated – even fun – foothold on living.
2) Related to Gifted/2E
Those who are gifted and 2E intensely experience the lows, mids, and the highs of living. Often they’re very serious, thoughtful, living in their mind. Or they’re noticing and experiencing everything. They can be slaves to their gifts and/or differences. Finding play that elicits laughter and fun can bring them back to a more centered feeling where they are free to choose. Having the counterbalance of play is especially helpful to them in the integration and well-being of their whole system.
