“Learn how to hold what hurts” We all carry pain with us. Sometimes we don’t know what to do with it. It can weigh on us if we don’t know how to hold it. But when we learn how to hold what hurts, it doesn’t have to bring us down. Instead we can sit with it, give it the space it needs, and keep moving. ✨ .

I personally struggled a lot with this concept, as I felt it invalidated the overwhelming pain I was in. But as I’ve learnt my way around my trauma, I began to appreciate the value of the here and now. In this moment, I am safe, happy and content, as trauma symptoms like flash backs or hyperviligance are just that, symptoms of trauma, in there here and now I am safe, so that’s what I connect to. #hereandnow #mindfulness #mindful #trauma #traumarecovery #past #future #beherenow #memories #memory #safety #ptsd #ptsdawareness #ptsdsurvivor #ptsdwarrior #complextrauma #complexptsd #cptsd #cptsdrecovery #cptsdwarriors #survivor #recovery #recoveryispossible #recoverywin #sufferingisoptional #connection #connect #connecttonow #bepresent #traumainformed.

Healing from Hidden Abuse: A Journey through the Stages of Recovery from Psychological Abuse..

Healing from Hidden Abuse: A Journey through the Stages of Recovery from Psychological Abuse. ...

Babies are born helpless, and are completely reliant on their caregivers to get their basic needs met. It is the responsibility of the infant's caregiver(s) to acknowledge and support the baby, and in particular it is the caregiver's job to feed, change, comfort, and support resting, for the growing and developing child.⠀
💜⠀
Attachment is the bond that is formed between the baby and the caregiver(s), such that the baby quickly comes to rely on the caregivers response style. In essence, the baby learns that when they need their caregiver, they will either be there when they need them, they will be there some of the time, they may be there and be unsafe, or they won't be there at all.⠀
💜⠀
These different ways of responding on the part of the caregiver, impacts the attachment style of the infant. If a child grows up with an insecure or disorganized attachment style, due to unsafe or unpredictable parenting, that will impact the sorts of relationships that child seeks out in adulthood.⠀
💜⠀
Attachment wounds are trauma, and they are worthy of healing. It is possible to create new relational patterns, and seek out secure partners and relationships. No matter your attachment style, you come by it honestly.⠀
💜⠀
To those of you who had unsafe or unstable caregivers, I see you. To those of you recovering from confusing or abusive relationships with your caregivers, I see you. To those of you struggling to find connection in a world of rejection, I see you.⠀

“Forgive Me” 🌥
•
Hi, everyone. I debated a lot over whether I wanted to share this particular poem with all of you. I wrote this when I was in the darkest place I’d ever been. I held an unhealthy amount of hate in my heart for two people I once loved dearly, but that love quickly turned into disgust after I discovered I was betrayed by both of them. I lost hope. I lost faith in humanity. These were people who had claimed to love me. I no longer knew what love was meant to look like. I no longer saw the purpose in being loyal or loving or kind because I had done those things and still ended up being the one destroyed. I didn’t want to live in a world where good people always seem to lose. This event led me to counseling after I had a severe breakdown due to no longer trusting people, no longer having hope, no longer wanting to feel what I had been wrongly taught love looked like. After describing my experiences of being in a relationship with one of these people, I was told by a professional that I showed every sign of an emotional abuse victim. I was experiencing trauma from psychological abuse through manipulative tactics such as gaslighting. The other person in this story is someone I once considered my best friend of 9 years. The abuser cheated on me with this person and left me for her. This was the breaking point for me and I truly believed nearly everyone on earth had malicious intentions. I no longer believed in the good. Soon after I had those thoughts and just before I was about to give up hope, I began this Instagram account. I began to get a whole lot of love in a very short amount of time from all of you. I made the decision to move away from home. This move led me to the brightest light I’ve ever experienced. The greatest hope I’ve felt since this tragedy. I recently learned what love is meant to look like. The only people I have in my life now are people who fit the mold of genuine care that I learned through counseling. I’m learning to not give my heart to people who don’t earn it. I’m happy. I’m hopeful. God knows what He’s doing. He closes doors to open far better ones. Trust Him and trust the process. 💛.

People say things like, I hate guns; or, I hate heroin; or I hate gang violence. Nobody says they hate that emotional health is not valued enough to be emphasized in the home and in schools- for poor emotional health leads to poor choices; Poor choices lead to things such as violence. Addiction is not caused by one single factor, we know genetics, environment, and psychosocial factors can be involved. Violence is a choice and is what people with poor emotional health believe to be conflict resolution. Everyone measures success on academic grades and career status, but does anyone measure success as the ability to minimize poor choices due to the lack of emotional health? When we finally recognize emotional education as more important than academic education, we may finally experience peace on earth. What good is it to be at the top half of your class if you’re an asshole? Or at best, emotionally immature. As a therapist, I constantly and persistently strive to see every scenario as an emotional reflex to trauma. Trauma is not always some sort of horrible event or abusive treatment; it can also be a result of being spoiled. I have seen extreme cruelty done from people who suffered from abuse just as much as those who “suffered” from being spoiled. What I mean by “emotional health” is recognizing and processing emotions appropriately. “Appropriate” entails not using selfishness to get one’s way, passive-aggressive communication, codependent behavior, defensiveness, seeking validation through others, emotional blackmail, attacks of character instead of request for changed behavior, stonewalling, dissociation, name-calling, threats used as leverage, and taking responsibility for one’s thoughts and actions. #therapy #therapist #psychotherapy #psychotherapist #traumainformed #traumarecovery #wisconsin #madisonwisconsin #madisonwi #instablog #instablogger #instapic #addiction #instapics #instalike #instaphoto #emotionalabuse #emotionalhealth #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #abuse #mentaldisorder #mentalillness #emotionalintelligence #mentalhealthblogger #violence #emotionalhealing #education #lmft #instaphotos.
