The Moments of Overwhelm

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.

As November comes to a close, home to the biggest of my trauma anniversaries (this year marks 25 years), I realize why I have struggled with sharing this past week. I understand why I have had some much to say, yet my words have felt stuck.

Working through some of the most traumatic parts of my childhood takes next level strength, it takes courage, and it takes commitment.

I am thankful that I have been listening to my mind and body over the past week or so and not pushing myself past what I know is achievable. It has allowed me to take on the grief these dates with a tank that wasn’t already empty.

When you find yourself in these moments of overwhelm, and you feel like you can’t stay within the lines – stop. Breathe. Allow yourself the time you need to rest and recharge.

Every part of your healing journey, the highs and the lows, are all part of your process. And each part teaches you a little bit more about who you are and how you heal.
