Honor Yourself, Heal Your Trauma

Honor Yourself, Heal Your Trauma

Originally published July 27, 2021

It’s incredibly human to wish for someone who hurt us to offer something that will magically heal us.

It’s also incredibly human to want to hurt the person back when we don’t get what we’re looking for.

But when we focus our energy looking for resolution outside of ourselves we are missing the healing opportunity right in our face.

The opportunity to honor yourself despite what anyone else says or does.

The opportunity to know, to love, to hold onto yourself even when others cannot.

Healing trauma is the process of reclaiming our power, the sovereignty we hold over our bodies and our lives.

We perpetuate trauma by ignoring this and granting the keys to our destiny to the people who have hurt us.
