Trauma is Complex

Trauma is very complex.  In my experience, moving from trauma to healing is much like a crab shedding its shell of protection; painful, vulnerable, exhausting, energizing and oh, it feels so good to integrate into the new!

Do you remember when it was so “uncool” to admit a need.  Some well-meaning mouth would correct my verbiage by saying, “You don’t NEED” you “WANT.”  Like a want was so much more OK than need.

Well, I’m here to tell you, that’s a lie.  We all have needs, wonderful needs, needs to be recognized, to be loved, to be touched, to be heard to be seen.  Secret #1:  Embrace your needs.

Stay with your truth.  The more I stay with my truth, the more stable I am and not de-stabilized by others.
