Journaling is a doorway inward.
Focused journaling/writing is one of my primary practices in my healing journey. Of course the occasional unfettered dump into my diary is necessary, but when I began to combine my love of writing with the focused intention of personal exploration and processing, I found a powerful tool.
I hope these prompts help you lean in and explore your thoughts, emotions, responses, and your connection to your body.
Be sure to check in with yourself as you write and step away if you need a break. Wishing you strength as you heal, and happy writing.
On goes the journey
This is a big one friends! This week, we are going to dig into our values. Let’s explore what they are, where they come from, how aligned we are with them, and what work we might still have to do as we adjust and learn.
- Make a list of your deeply held values.
- When you think about them, do they feel authentic to you, do they mirror those of your childhood caregivers, or is it a mixture of both?
- Does the way that you live your life and navigate your healing journey does it align with the values that you hold?
- Write about ways that you align with your values and ways that you’d prefer to adjust. Now make a list of two or three things you can do to make the adjustments you seek.
I hope these prompts help you lean and learn about yourself.
Looking for ways to connect with other survivors and/or receive support as you heal?
Survivor’s Circle Peer Support Groups might be just what you need.
These small groups meet on alternating days of the week via Zoom. In these groups, survivors connect, share, and support each other through the ebbs and flows of healing. Attend a session and experience the magical healing that happens when survivors connect and support each other through shit only we can understand.
