SELF HELP RESOURCES:
Books, Audio, Video, and education for trauma survivors.
I get a lot of anxiety while riding in the car, especially with my babies in the back.
It's not because of the car accidents I have experienced or the car sickness I sometimes feel.
It's not because of the memories I have of being in the car with my parents or scary car ride I once rode in the backseat of a drunk driver refusing to pull over.
I'm afraid of losing something good.
I do not want anything to take away the ones that I love most.
It feels hard to risk losing something I finally have after so many years of trauma and abuse.
All the obstacles I've overcome led me to 3 beautiful children and a relationship with a partner who is my best friend ------ I would travel to hell and beyond to protect them.
Love is at the epicenter of my healing and strength as a survivor.
Love has always kept me going, fighting, and pushing for more in life.
Whenever I was in an abusive situation, i knew it was not the answer or life meant for me.
I was not meant for a long life of destruction and dysfunction.
I just refused to believe that.
I now love my life, even though I'm still traveling towards awareness + good health + prosperity.
Love is what has set me free every time I've had struggles.
This past winter, I had a break through in my mindset and healing when I surrendered to all that is not perfect in myself.
I chose to just love me through the hard stuff.
The anxiety. Depression. PTSD.
The imperfections and mistakes.
The more I follow love, the closer I get to building the puzzle of my life. It is attracting the right friendships, opportunities and passions. Love is giving me a purpose in this world.
No one ever put any of these emotions into words like Jessie Ptak has.
While I normally sit anxiously in the passenger seat on long drives, today I followed my intuition and grabbed her book " a home in me " for the ride.
I do not just feel calm right now.
I feel understood.
