This was tweeted today, and is an example of why I do this. Why I share my journey with others, why I write and post and have a website.
People see I understand. And understand what most people don’t. They see I can express the deeper aspects of this journey. Were people read about my journey and they then can understand themselves better. They understand my empathy for others. They see I have a level of honesty and integrity that makes them feel safe. And trust and safety are huge issues for us.
It means a lot to me, to have this kind of feedback from other survivors of complex trauma.
It means I am doing something meaningful and helpful for others.
