Trauma is not just one time catastrophic events. it goes beyond assault, and “extreme abuse.” trauma includes emotional neglect, lack of boundaries, having our realities denied, + many other things that aren’t typically seen that way.
at its core: trauma disconnects us from self.
it conditions us to look outside of ourselves from worth.
it conditions us to believe that who we aren’t is not acceptable, and we must play roles.
we overthink, people please, engage in codependent relationships, + stay paralyzed in our own indecisiveness because we lack self trust.
our healing is about reclaiming ourselves.
it’s doing the work to become aware of our habits, patterns, + behaviors. not from a space of judgement, from a place of self observation. that’s how we learn our conditionings.
once we are aware, we can begin unlearning.
we can begin to say no + have clear boundaries.
we can begin to chose ourselves + accept that will disappoint others.
we can begin to attract relationships that are space of mutual respect + evolution.
what’s one thing you’re unlearning from trauma? #selfhealers
