What are the watch words for today? Cover your bases, and protect yourself. As much as you'd like to save the world from all of the evil people out there, unfortunately you can't. It's one thing to be aware of the world and care. On the other hand, you have to at times pick your battles and screen everything to protect yourself.
We don't want to end up being burned out, cynical and angry all the time. Take things in small steps. Cover bases. Create opportunites, instead of waiting for the world to come to you.
We do all of these. Yet, the despair is still there. For a really long time, severe dissociating happened every day. Now, we finally can sit for 15 seconds and not dissociate. Maybe most people don't have to worry about that. However, for trauma survivors, do you feel happy? Do you feel robbed? We don't know what to do.
Can you trust anybody? Do you feel like you're the only one that sees everything that's happening? Everyone else is about 5 steps behind and too busy arguing to pay attention?
If you want to be heard, how do you do it? In not all but many cases, if you cut into someone's profit margin, THEN they suddenly have time in their incredibly busy schedule to deal with you. Can you name one situation where that's not true?
