    Love does not abandon #CPTSD #Christian #Catholic

    Love does not abandon.

    My niece loves me. I will not abandon her like my dad abandoned me. It still hurts. I know the pain and I will NOT abandon my niece or my future children!!!

    Lord, give me acceptance that I may never have a healthy, loving relationship with my father. Help me place myself in your hands and show my heart that my earthly father does not determine my self-worth. Show me the people that need my love. Give me my purpose. Thank you.

    Coping with depression

    Felt so depressed so decided to take my time in washing dishes, then jumped on the elliptical while watching Cobra Kai, stretched and ended up almost finishing up this coloring page to cope with depression. It worked!

    Just Returned to Work

    I checked myself into the hospital a few months ago and did some outpatient group therapy. At work today I realized that I was unconsciously doing things to prepare others for my absence at work in case anything happened to me. I realized that I was preparing others at work for my death all because my Dad, uncle, sister, and a friend touched a wound of me feeling unworthy (it all happened within 3 months). It’s painful to be able to see this. Be not afraid of checking yourself into a hospital. Your life is still worth living. #SuicideIdeation #CPTSD #MajorDepressiveDisorder #Catholic

    It’s been a battle in my mind with staying present. Yesterday, I realized that my parents never asked me what my favorite colors where, celebrated me, remember any milestones, noticed when I quit basketball in 6th grade, never encouraged me to dream or asked me how my day was going . I would just bring in my straight A’s and it was noted but not celebrated. I just existed but wasn’t seen. They didn’t help me discover who I am. Just a lot of emotional neglect. So, I feel that I now need to ask myself those basic questions: what are your favorite colors? What is your favorite song? Who are you, really what do you want out of life? What interests you?Some more self discovery. #CPTSD #depressed #hopeful #childabusesurvivor #Catholic #Selfdiscovery #HealingProcess

    Best Date of my life so far was a week ago!

    Ah! I had the best date in my life about a week ago!! 🤩 Please keep in mind that I’ve had to do trauma therapy because of a date r**** back in college which has prevented me from going out on dates for many years.
    ——-
    I felt respected and didn’t feel the need to hide my body or emotions. Yes, there were times were I was uncomfortable because of past trauma (date r****, 8 years ago), but I didn’t let that discomfort stop me from smiling and laughing again!! It’s been a while. What a good time 🤪. I wanna do it again!! I want to go out with a man who truly respects me and everyone around him ! 🤩
    ———
    I happy cried that night because I found a big part of me that had been hiding for a long while— that beautiful part in my soul that tells me to embrace my womanhood 🌹 and that it is safe and that there are virtuous men in the world. Praise the Lord #Feminity #CPTSD #Catholic #Daterape #CheerMeOn

    Deserve>Desire #CPTSD #Catholic

    Be with the man who deserves you, not with the man who desires you.

    How many times have I had my heart broken because I go with the man who only desires me and doesn’t FULLY respect me? I emphasize FULLY because if a man treats me better than my biological and ex-stepfather, I assume it is a great relationship. I don’t want that anymore. I still don’t completely understand what it means to be completely respected and have my human dignity protected and loved, but I am not quitting. I am going to find out what this means and live it out! St. Maria Goretti, pray for me. St. Michael the Archangel, pray for me. #CPTSD #Catholic
