A PART OT GOOD THERAPY IS LEARNING TO SPEAK FOR YOURSELF—-BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE WON’T ASK ANYWAY! 😀
Before I was strong enough to speak my truth about surviving childhood trauma I would consider myself as one word: fragile. The vulnerability within the core of my character was one of the first things people noticed when they met me. I became familiar with terms like, “you seem so nervous”, “are you scared?”, and “it looks like you’re about to cry right now”. I didn’t know how to respond, and mostly, I just shrugged it all off.
But, parts of those statements were very true.
I was nervous, because I was so afraid to do something wrong and increase my already dominating anxiety. I was scared because I was so accustomed to feeling as if I was in “survivor mode”. I was scared of letting anyone within my inner circle because my trust had been broken as a young girl.
