👋We’ve all done it.
We’ve spent time judging our own traumas and decided on their validity, in comparison to others’ woes.
👋We’ve told ourselves: “They have it worse off than me”, “At least I had food over my head”.
We’ve spent time overemphasizing OUR role in traumatic experiences and diminished the function of others who have caused US pain: “I always CHOOSE the wrong partner”, “He was so sh**ty, I SHOULD have known better”.
💡When we spend so much of our time diminishing our traumas, we escape the opportunity to begin healing.
💡Only when we begin to let go of minimizing the pain we ARE feeling, we begin to find ways to reassess our capability to heal.
💡Here is your reminder that💡
YOUR trauma is valid even if:
🔎You can’t remember it properly
🔎It’s been years since it happened
🔎Your experience of symptoms differs from other’s
🔎You haven’t spoken about it
🔎You’ve worked through it
🔎Took you time to recognize that it was trauma
Happy Feeling & Healing 💙
