The concept of parts suggests that, as we go through life, we may become fragmented at the unconscious level. When someone does this they experience internal conflict. They say things like, "On the one hand I want X, on the other I want Y", or "A part of me wants X, a part of me wants Y", or "I don't know why I did that, its just not me", or "I don't know why I did it, I wasn't myself". Parts are the cause of incongruency in the individual.

Prime Concerns

We all have concerns in our life. A prime concern is one that spans all areas of your life. Quite often even though it affects all areas of the person's life, they do not know what it is consciously. For instance, is there something within you that holds you back and prevents you from being who you want to be, doing what you want to do, or having what you want to have but you don't know what it is? That could be a prime concern for you. If you were able to discover what it is and get rid of it, it would totally change your life, wouldn't it?
