I KNOW YOU'RE TIRED
When we are on this healing journey, it’s so hard to know when we are doing it ‘right’ or when we are hitting a dead end and need to back away to go back to the last fork in the road. It’s also hard to not give ourselves a super hard time when we feel like we keep doing these U turns and are feeling exhausted.
BUT KEEP DOING THE WORK
But I just wanted to encourage you to keep doing the work! Keep wondering what your feelings are telling you. Keep expanding your window of tolerance. Keep saying to yourself, while I just whoopsied, I can always U turn here or pause or rest or share my thoughts with a fellow survivor who will understand me. Keep doing the work! It’s NEVER for naught! It will ALWAYS bring you closer to a better life. We can’t always control how long it takes, but we can control a small moment or a fleeting thought. Find your own unique combination of what YOU need to survive and then what you need to thrive. They are different modes and we may need different things to support us when we are operating in those different modes. Regardless, doing the work is always a good thing.

Self-abandonment cycle refers to a pattern of behavior where individuals neglect their own needs, emotions, and values in order to please others or to conform to societal expectations. This cycle can lead to feelings of low self-worth, depression, and anxiety.
I never believed that I have depression in the normal sense of what’s regarded as depression. I’m not somebody who’s walked around going, oh I’m depressed and I really feel it in my body. For me in the beginning the depression just used to knock me out. I’d be getting ready to go and exercise and I’d wake up with one gym shoe and suck on and go, what happened? There’s videos of all the things that I’ve done along the way to get to where I am today.
