Episode 41: Boundaries around your trauma are extremely important. Setting Boundaries with PTSD can be a challenging thing.
PTSD Circles of Trust
Inside the mind of a trauma survivor, are bad memories right underneath the surface. Learn how and when to share, how much to share, and the consequences to you when it happens.
In my opinion, people are desensitized to trauma and have forgotten their power in setting boundaries.
Empathy Therapy for PTSD
Caring for yourself enough to work on yourself, share, attend counseling, check in, journal for self-reflection takes self-empathy. Medications and natural PTSD drugs have shown promise in research because they directly play with the chemicals involved with empathy. It works and it’s powerful.
A person should earn the right to hear your story. Don’t just tell it everyone someone asks. Have a story for the postman if he sees you limp, your cousin that sees you on holidays, and a version for those closest to you day-in-day-out – and the inner circle that may include your pastor, PTSD Psychiatrist, or therapist.
