This is more true than we realize at first. We think we know WHO we are yet, if we havenโ€™t processed our trauma, many times we have no idea! Posted by @exhaleptsd. .
.

You will not meet yourself until you have gone through therapy and/or self healing. Have you seen glimpses of humor, a different kind of compassion, interests in things you had no idea would interest you, speaking differently at times and you feel so comfortable with who you are at the time?? But, you have no idea where that person came from for the moment? ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘?????
.
Well you have seen a glimpse of who you really are!! Itโ€™s almost an unveiling of a higher you thatโ€™s in FLOW. Itโ€™s amazing and I donโ€™t want ANYONE quitting until you get there! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ
.
Sounds like a miracle? Yes, maybe but this is when you meet YOU! This is your growth! Drop away all the pain and let go- get it all out and feel freedom!! โ›ฑโ›ฑโ›ฑโ›ฑ

YOU CAN DO THIS! START LEANING INTO FEAR- BE THE COURAGEOUS PERSON YOU TRULY ARE- THE ONE BORN WITH NO TRAUMA! ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ

I challenge you to do anything today that scares you. Just TRY!! This is the beginning of healing!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Show me a person who goes out of their way to look like they have the perfect life, and Iโ€™ll show you a broken, insecure, scared child whoโ€™s terrified of what people would think if they REALLY knew them!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Personally, give me a broken person who has worked on their traumas and knows who they are vs the the โ€œperfect personโ€. They have not figured out yet that perfect doesnโ€™t exist! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

This is someone who has yet to face their past, has not done the work and needs others to approve of them. There is hope for them. They just have to hit a bottom like we have. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

C-PTSD is a topic often requested, especially how it differs from 'regular' PTSD. Firstly PTSD is an official diagnosis, C-PTSD is not(yet). However C-PTSD is very much recognized among psychologists and psychiatrists. ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€โš•๏ธ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€โš•๏ธ PTSD is much more treatable than C-PTSD and it occurs for very different reasons too! PTSD can happen after just ONE traumatic event like a  violent attack or a bad accident.๐Ÿ’ฅ C-PTSD usually occurs after prolonged trauma, most often it happens due to childhood trauma, but for example being in a toxic/violent/stressful relationship as an adult can cause it too.๐Ÿ‘€ The longer the trauma, the more complicated it can get. and sadly, the harder it is to overcome. Every situation is of course different and everyone's path to recovery unique.๐ŸŒป What I want to emphasize is proper treatment. Trauma requires very specific treatment and whoever provides it should be a trauma specialist of some kind. Don't think that you'll have to

PTSD is caused by single traumatic event, for example a car accident, military combat, being attacked violently. with proper treatment PTSD can be cured as fast as in a few months. C-PTSD occurs after prolonged, repetitive interpersonal trauma. due to the nature of c-ptsd being rooted in things like childhood abuse or domestic violence, it's often inescapable especially when the victim is a child. unlike PTSD, C-PTSD affects our psyche and how we perceive the world around us. recovery can be a lifelong journey.] #cptsd #cptsdrecovery #cptsdtriggers #ptsdrecovery #ptsdawareness #posttraumaticstressdisorder #complexposttraumaticstressdisorder #traumaticchildhood #traumasurvivor #traumainformedtherapy #traumabonding #childabuseawareness #childrensmentalhealth #childhoodtrauma #childabusesurvivor #childsexualabuse #domesticviolence #toxicmothers #toxicfather ...

Day 11 of 22

Making up for last night  since i fell asleep. 
Day 12 is going to be later today.

22 pushups a day for 22 days for the 22 solder and veterans  who commit  suicide  a day. The symbol  is to raise  awareness for a silent  problem  that when discovered  it could  be too late. Take cause of the ones who sacrificed  to ensure the freedoms  folks take for granted  or abuse.
