The Body Keeps the Score: Survival Mode

.
.
In other words: If an organism is stuck in survival mode,
.
its energies are focused on fighting off unseen enemies,
.
which leaves no room for nurture, care, and love.
.
.
For us humans,
.
it means that as long as the mind is defending itself against invisible assaults,
.
our closest bonds are threatened,
.
along with our ability to
.
imagine,
.
plan,
.
play,
.
learn,
.
and pay attention
.
to other people’s needs.
