We have nothing to hide behind to escape pain. I saw something online recently that made a good point. Essentially, don't run away from your pain. In the most non-threatening way possible, face your trauma history. You try and do that, and what happens?
Every day feels like nothing but pain. Your intuition feels like you're the only one that sees everything that's going on. You struggle to find positive things in your background. You have to protect yourself, because violent triggering things are everywhere.
Is everything a threat? No. But at times you have to remind yourself of that.
Have a good day.
