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.
It has taken me years to get to a point where I can recognize my own personal judgement of myself and takes steps to counter it.
So easily my body remembers the abuses I have experienced and manifests it into my energy flow and emotions.
It can send me from days of happiness and light into the darkest caverns of my mind without any warning.
Then I get so caught up in trying to figure out what happened to cause such overwhelm, and I become fixated on what my emotions are and where they came from – forgetting to allow them to flow so I can feel them and move through them.
Childhood trauma is a healing journey with no set direction or course. It goes up, down, backwards, and forwards. Occasionally you may even find yourself in a side-step.
But each step is necessary in our own personal journeys.
My offer of experience is this – love yourself as hard as you can in the moments you feel most overwhelmed and defeated. Those are the moments your inner child needs you the most.
You’ve got this!!
