Therapy Went Well

To think I almost bailed, but I had really bad PTSD the day before. Writing that I’m a victim of domestic violence, owning that as part of my identity, made me feel ashamed. I completely broke down. It was crippling. I had therapy, which made me feel tons better, because the therapist told me two harrowing stories. She also told me PTSD can go away forever (it happened for her), after I found out on Google that it can be permanent. I felt damaged. How did this happen to me? How could I let it. She told me part of healing is standing up to what’s causing it. So I have and will continue to stand up for myself, facing my abusers.

There is nothing wrong with me. One day I won’t feel this way. I realize I’ve had chronic PTSD for years. Part of why I almost bailed on therapy is due to the trust issues it’s caused me. It’s not fair that I see life through these lenses. I am hopeful I will get better and vacation will help with that. If you’re facing something traumatic you aren’t alone, or broken and therapy helps. Via: Symbolic Magic Art

Tell Me Your Story…

I know you’re not boring (can’t help but put music in everything). This is really a space for everyone. Adulthood is a passage we all must sojourn in this ephemeral thing called life. By sharing our trials, tribulations and points of view, we can navigate it together.

I’m honored that my friend will be the first to post an experience and would be humbled if you felt the same.

So submit what you want others to understand, a new way of seeing things, your unique perspective to! This is a place to heal through compassion, kindness and introspection. Also writing is insanely therapeutic. You don’t have to use your real name, do whatever makes you feel comfortable. You need different notes to create harmony, not just my one key. Remember your voice matters. Photo: Light And Text
