"pick up the ashes and blow them to the wind". Powerful word picture jas, thank you. Judging our past memories, triggers or coping mechanisms when we think/feel about them is non productive. Our inner healer is awakened by safety, connecting with supportive, empowering survivors and supporters that simply through their own success and reaching out want to help other survivors thrive. Be aware of the trigger or memory, initiate the inner healer and learn to calmly, safely navigate through the agony and terror of tat rejection, abandonment and destruction.
Good work here articulating the process, we need more of these guide posts on our individual journey, thank you.
