I realise all too well, you cannot heal within chaos and stress. So wherever possible, this needs to be removed from your life. It is a choice to be made and the only person who can choose this, is self.
People often rationalise putting themselves within chaos and unhealthy relationships/environments. Especially when this is someone’s ‘normal’. When raised within a childhood of fear, stress, chaos – it is your normal. But, it is does not need to stay that way. It is a still a choice – as to what you expose yourself to. Including people, situations, environments.
The only person that can ensure I lead a life of non chaos and more peace….. is me. So this is my choice.
I believe this to be as vital to the healing process, when healing complex trauma.
So, I choose peace now wherever possible. I would rather have less people in my life, reduce social media interaction, be careful what activities I choose to be involved in and the people I choose to associate with.
