There are many plateaus and many turning points. Quite a few sliding backward phases, which were super hard to deal with. But the OMG I’VE MADE IT TO THE NEXT STAGE UP, are moments to celebrate.
Short & Sweet
As we go through all of the ups and downs, and twists and turns of life, sometimes it can feel overwhelming, and we may wonder if life will ever get better; especially for those of us who struggle with Complex PTSD. We tend to be in survival mode, so we often react in the only ways that we’ve ever known; which leads to emotional subsistence.
You know what this says to me, get out of my way; I am breaking free.
I think I have reached a point where I finally realise that I am not a robot and there are these things called emotions, that everything is not black and white, I can define the relationship I have with anyone, there is this thing called shame that holds me back and down and chokes the life out of me.
