What do you do when good memories trigger you?

Usually we think bad memories are triggering but what about good memories?

What have I learned after being abused? #Trauma

Life has taught me a lot of cruel lessons.

I learned that the people you don't expect to hurt you, can hurt you.

That I am not to blame for what was done to me- and that shame can and does resurface.

That I have no control over others, only myself. And this lack of control over others brings up hard feelings.

That I can live a healthy, happy life but somewhere inside me will always be a slightly wounded child.

That no amount of dwelling on the past will change the past. And that I don't know what the future holds.

That I can heal but the memories will always be there.

That the triggers will always be there but they don't have to disable me.

That I can be and am loved despite what happened. I am not damaged, dirty or abnormal.

I can smile and keep going, even with tears in my eyes.

I can cry it out then move on because I am stronger and more determined than I thought.

Though I've learned a lot of harsh lessons, I've learned lessons on love too.

Keep searching and learning and love will find you too.

Learning

Each day is a new opportunity to learn about yourself.

Today I learned that my Disorganized/Fearful attachment style and my people pleasing are connected. That my trauma driven behaviors are actually the result of my attachment style.

If you are curious and want to know what your style is, there are tons of quizzes online.

I suggest taking one. It changed my perspective and helped me to understand what I need to change. I need to be more trusting and more mindful in my relationships.

Slowly, I am learning what drives my behaviors and the more I know the more I can heal.
