This blog is about our inner warriors, those conflicting forces that operate inside all of us.

All the “inner warriors” concept started when I was learning Mandarin and I realized that the character for the word “I” contained two spears, one against the other.

That idea of Self as the arena for all the conflicts matched my understanding of Human nature.

Since then, I represent our psychological instances and patterns as warriors to make their conflictual nature more evident.

I hope you enjoy and share the ideas that have been helping me as an evolving person and as a psychology professional.

Thank you!
