Thoughts Over Coffee
Coffee is therapy. Read along as I relate and offer affirmation to the struggles of living with Complex PTSD over my morning coffee.
Why, knowing what we know about mental health and trauma is therapy still stigmatized?
Therapy saved my life. When my memories first resurfaced and the proverbial wall crumbled, I was in crisis mode.
Therapy held me up while I regained my footing in those early months, and it has since guided me as I learn who I am and what my trauma means for me now, in the middle of my life.
For the last four years my therapist has been a litmus in times of extreme overwhelm; she is helping me build a tool kit for coping, and helping me learn to find my center and create balance.
That said, you don’t have to have a trauma like mine, to benefit from help with personal growth, and self-reflection.
I just wanted to share this.
It’s time to normalize saying “I have a therapist”.
