Healing Teaches Hard Lessons
Surviving Childhood Trauma

1M ago
Childhood abuse etched a belief system into me, it downloaded a voice into my brain – both determined to convince me I am not good enough, not worthy, and that I need to abandon myself in order to be safe. All my life I’ve let others have their way with my emotions, so long as they don’t leave me. It’s comfortable there, I have a sense of control – at least I can continue trying to be “better” and to “do better”. The Lessons Healing is teaching me that I know my truth and that the voices in my head that tries to beat me down don’t belong to me. Healing is teaching me that I am worthy, good eno ..read more

A quick share from the Surviving Childhood Trauma Instagram Page If there is every a message I want to get across, it is that you are not alone, that you do not have to heal alone! A Commitment to My Process I’ve been committed to actively healing my childhood wounds with awareness for about 6 years now. For the first three years I went to therapy twice a week, wrote on my blog, and tried my hardest to move through life as I found my footing and adjusted to living with Complex PTSD. I made a lot of progress in those first three years … But when I came to social media in the beginning of 2020 ..read more

Thoughts Over Coffee with Shanon from Surviving Childhood Trauma Join me for a cup of coffee and some real talk about complex PTSD and trauma healing and recovery. As the end of the year draws close, I have been spending time evaluating and reflecting on how and where I spend my time and energy. Recent Freeze Mode In October I went through a period of time where I just didn’t feel like I had the space (or want) to sit down and think about my healing let alone write about it. Which is what happens when I cycle through my freeze response. I kept telling myself I would check in via my stories ..read more

A quick share from the Surviving Childhood Trauma Instagram page I knew this month would be different, more difficult, than the other months this year. The dates that fall in November and their significance in my life assures that they are not forgotten. But, this year they landed differently for me. They didn’t pull me under like I expected, though I felt the dates in my body; the emotional dysregulation, the exhaustion, and the constant pull to think of the past. This month I felt myself tasked with reconciling my childhood experiences with new perspectives and levels of awareness. And I cop ..read more

It is Okay To Be Angry
Surviving Childhood Trauma

Thoughts Over Coffee via Surviving Childhood Trauma I once received a comment on a post I wrote about the senselessness of, and my anger at what happened to me as a child that read: “life is trauma” and then explained how we need to move through and let go of anger in order to heal. Great *insert big sigh* another fucking prerequisite for healing – this time, the idea that anger hinders it. The Gaslighting of Anger I was amazed at how condescending and harmful the comment was, it was a text book example of gaslighting and a glimpse at the cultural stigma put on anger. Instead of hearing my t ..read more

Journaling is a doorway inward.  Focused journaling/writing is one of my primary practices in my healing journey. Of course the occasional unfettered dump into my diary is necessary, but when I began to combine my love of writing with the focused intention of personal exploration and processing, I found a powerful tool.  I hope this prompt helps you lean in and explore your thoughts, emotions, responses, and your connection to your body.  Be sure to check in with yourself as you write and step away if you need a break. Wishing you strength as you heal, and happy writing.  O ..read more
