C-PTSD:—Beliefs and Thoughts can build walls limiting opportunity and living!

It seems to me that we limit opportunity, flexibility and true living with our thought process. My life opened up when I released my cognitive offerings quickly, then stayed present, listening to all in front of me.
Some of my beliefs narrowed my life considerably, creating expectations for me. I craved approval, got angry with criticism and avoided a good portion of life, guarding my beliefs.
My beliefs were wrong, completely wrong. I thought myself damaged from birth, shamed with flaws, maybe not worthy of existence.
Now, that belief has been proven entirely wrong. Life just is and our part is to experience as much of it as we can. That means let the thought of doubt, worry, failure or success, good or bad, right or wrong go.
I do not harbor thoughts now, freeing my life for opportunity and passion.
Yes, we can live more fully than before our trauma. Therapists rarely or never mention this fact, maybe because few ever heal on their couches, I do not know. The fact is that my living is better than any point in my existence. All this awaits those who believe and take daily action.
Judging me or anything else has curtailed, leaving opportunity and freedom as my companions. This is available for all who practice daily. How about you?

    “Yes, we can live more fully than before our trauma”. To know this is a game changer – cut free the ball and chain of the past and live in the moment.

  2. It does not take that much work if you practice daily and apply it. My model is like the tip of a sword piercing the tough exterior of the balloon of PTSD. it goes to the core and handles thoughts immediately.

    What fires together wires together. Rick Hanson Modern neuroscience says so. Why not use it along with mindfulness to heal more quickly easily that other paths.

  3. Kate ~ I love your descriptions of both Community and Compassion.I appticeare you bringing in the concept of sensitivity, too. So many of us on this path of love and compassion are here because we have sensitive hearts. We want to keep them open. But we also want to learn how to do that skillfully, without being hurt.Wholeness and belonging. Ahhh. Thanks Kate, you’ve given me many great concepts to consider.Twitter:
