From the moment we are born, we begin developing beliefs, perceptions,
and narratives about the world and the way we navigate it.
When those perceptions are formed around highly adverse or traumatic experiences,
we have to develop ways to cope that help us get through it...
Even when we don't fully remember the experiences!
That helps us survive!
But while helpful at the time, those ways of coping tend to stick with us
and they become less and less helpful (even destructive or harmful) as we get older.
That’s when we get stuck.
We get stuck in repeated patterns of unexplained emotionality, relational chaos or emptiness,
deep internal pain or fear, or find ourselves living life almost robotically.
We lose our passion, our meaning, our zest for life.
If this sounds familiar, maybe you feel like something is wrong with you or like you're going crazy.
Or maybe someone in your life is telling you that.
That's the bad news.
The good news is that, nope! It's not true.
You're not going crazy. There is nothing wrong with you.
These are the confusing and devastating effects of trauma.
And together, we can unravel that.
You don't have to do this alone.
