When I’m in a dorsal state, depressed, experiencing suicidal ideation, shut down, feel numb, or just need a hug I tend to turn to one (or all) of my comforts which stem from my childhood wounds.
Some nights you can find me:
•Curled up with one of my many squish-mallows and baby blanket (yes, it still exists)
•Drinking “hot chocky” (hot chocolate)
•Cozying up under fluffy, soft blankets
•Rewatching Frozen II on repeat
Yes, some of these may seem childish, but but the goal isn’t to appear a certain way. The goal is to stay safe, regular my emotions, and come back to a state of equilibrium in my body.
What comforts you when your down? Is it journaling? Watching a comedy?
Let’s start a conversation.
I love you, I’ll see you soon 🧡 #nationalsuicidepreventionmonth #988 #twloha
