Unlearning Negative Defensive Mechanisms – VIDEO

Recently I took an excerpt from a previous post and created a meme to share on my Instagram page (be sure to follow me!!).

This was part of a piece I wrote on the Realities of Compete PTSD. I received a lot of questions on this post about how I am working to “unlearn” these hardwired protective coping skills.

I wish there was an easy answer, or a short cut to reach our healing destination but there isn’t. I talked about the things I am doing to help myself rewire my own thought processes in the video below.

  1. Thanks for this! My response to these situations seems to be body-focused repetitive tics. And they can be reallly hard to undo. I’ve been finding it very hard lately to be able to focus on and enjoy anything, or to relax. And it all makes me hypervigilant too. But I’m doing better today, and have managed to sculpt a safe self-sufficient environment around myself to protect myself from the horrors of this shared house that I am living in πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ. So, I feel able to work on undoing them again and regaining ability to do things including reading. Your post was re-assuring :).

    1. I’m sorry your living situation is so difficult. Glad to hear my words helped a little. πŸ™‚ One day at a time, that’s all we can do. I am glad to hear you found the space you needed, I hope you are able to relax into an activity you enjoy.
