TACS: Task Eight: Modify the Managers (and Firefighters)
Task Eight: Modify the Managers (and Firefighters) -Once an Exiled wounded Part has been healed, it's time to help the managers choose, learn, develop or look for new jobs or functions so that they can become modified back to their original intended purpose. For example, the vulnerable parts of us are intended to help connect with others by letting our guard down and letting other people in. The angry, defiant part of us is the part that can dig its heels in, set boundaries, and say no. It's the part that helps us maintain a sense of autonomy and a separate sense of self. We need to be able to connect and yet remain separate.The critical part of us is important for keeping our feet on the ground so that we can be pragmatic and make good decisions. We need to be critical thinkers who can spot an obstacle down the road without becoming negative or shaming or name calling. Many other parts have original intended purposes as well. And you may not yet know what those intended purposes are, but some part of them, or some part of you knows instinctively what the original intended purpose of each part is.
