HEALING TRAUMA – MY STORY
This is Part II of a 3 Part series on how I healed from childhood trauma. If you haven’t watched my trauma story, you can do that by clicking here.
This series is NOT meant to be a “how to” or advice on how to heal trauma. This is my personal story, and I’m sharing it because I think the world needs more stories of healing trauma because the truth is: it’s really personal, there is no one way to heal, and yet we’re often told that trauma can only be healed in therapy, with medication, or a strategically crafted shamanic ceremony…take your pick.
My own story has not at all matched the common narrative of “how to heal trauma.”
I believe we heal in relationships. I believe we aren’t as fragile as we’ve been led to believe, nor as inept at self-healing.
I believe we’re all equipped to heal from even the most horrific life events, and the only reason we don’t is because we believe the modern narrative that trauma is differentiating, it makes us “other than” and “defective” rather than perfectly, beautifully, tragically (at times) human.
Part II of my journey is about coming home to my body.
I am purposely telling my story this time rather than writing it. So please watch and comment with your thoughts, and share this series with anyone you think could benefit.
I’ll look for you in the comments below!
