Are you tired of feeling 'broken'?

Why this resource is helpful:

Quoted From:

"You"re experiencing the pain of living a life where your trauma is behind you, yet your trauma symptoms are with you every single day.
You don"t understand or recognize yourself.
You"re suspicious of other people and have a hard time feeling close to anyone.
You"re struggling with being fully present, often dissociating or overall feeling numb.
Your feelings can change out of nowhere. One minute you feel normal or numbed out and the next you"re hit with a wave of emotion that feels like a flash flood.
You"re tired of walking on eggshells around others, and going above and beyond to please others who don"t even treat you well.
You find yourself constantly on edge in your relationships.
Seasonal and Hallmark holidays celebrating parents are difficult because you"re balancing the boundaries you"ve put in place for your own sake and the constant pressure to spend time with and celebrate your family.
You"re overextending yourself to be "nice" and accommodating towards others, but also feeling exhausted from carrying the brunt of the responsibility in your relationships - always doing the reaching out, always doing the planning of the hang outs. You want to tell someone how you"re feeling, but you also don"t want to hear "why didn"t you say something?"
Similarly, you often think about setting boundaries in your relationships, but you"re afraid of hurting others" feelings for even one moment. Worse yet, you worry others will push you away if you do make your needs known. Worse still, you can"t let go of the thought that they"ll just forget what you said and you"ll have to have the same conversation over and over, and you"d rather just not.
You"ve struggled with this for as long as you can remember - you don"t remember a "before." You"ve gotten so used to making yourself and your needs small in your relationships. You"re simultaneously not surprised and completely let down when others don"t get you or don"t show up for you. You might feel stuck between a desire to create some kind of change and thoughts of "it doesn"t even matter."
Your needs do matter."
