❤ Self Care Is Vital ❤
In light of what is happening in the US Presidential debates, please know it is okay to switch it off, and not expose yourself to anything triggering and upsetting to watch.
The levels of abusive behaviours and attitudes, plus all the condoning, rationalising, minimizing, trivialising, projecting, deflecting etc behaviours, is beyond terrible and very indicative of abusive tactics displayed by narcissists/sociopaths/psychopaths and their enablers.
This can be very triggering for those who have endured sexual, emotional, mental, psychological abuse and have been further traumatised by people who condoned, minimized, trivialised (etc) the abuse.
Self care is vital when dealing with severe PTSD and Complex PTSD and healing from abuse – especially if the symptoms are not well managed.
It is okay and may be wise to turn the news and coverage off.
We do not need to subject ourselves to flashbacks, intrusive memories, emotional flashbacks etc – because of all this heinous behaviour and attitudes being displayed.
****And please note – this post is ‘not’ to debate politics – but only for self care needs due to being abuse survivors.
