When you’re assaulted as a child and no one notices, much comes to your rescue, you learn to fend for yourself. Later in life, you may even doubt the sincerity of those who offer to help because well—once burned twice shy.
But if you’ve noticed, life is getting stranger and harder. And the reality that no one should do life alone is clearer than ever.
And while it seems like the scariest time to let your guard down, it’s the only way to get the help you need to manage feelings about old trauma rising with feelings about today’s trauma.
Solo feels safe, but doesn’t always leave you sane. It’s okay to ask for help. 💜
