I have reached the chapters in The Body Keeps the Score that talk about healing.
The first half of the book was a difficult read, I have to be honest. Triggering in places but what came across the most was this man's deep empathy and care in his journey to understand and help people.
Sometimes I feel like my body is at constant war, I'm riddled with self sabotage and that feeling of guilt as if I don't deserve to be treated well or treat myself well. Sometimes it is a fight I win and sometimes a fight I lose.
I'm starting to realise though, that I'm not a bad person and I'm certainly not what my mother needed me to be to feel justified in her behaviour.
I am not my triggers
I am not my reactions
I am not other people's perceptions
I am not me at my best
I am not me at my worst
I am good enough
I will keep reading
