Being Vulnerable

Learning to experience fear and pain was paramount for me to heal.

I learned to accept, then surrender to triggers. It was an arduous journey wrought with irrational fear and confusion.

Persistent, daily practice chipped away at my fears little by little.

I learned to experience the trigger thoughts without judgment or resistance.

In fact I teach this in my mindfulness group.

Surrender is our most powerful strength!

What we resist, persists.

I fought my PTSD and it grew, I surrendered to it and it collapsed.

Counterintuitive yes, but surrendering is part of healing, the ultimate act of letting go.

We heal by not thinking or talking about our details and symptoms.

Practice, take small, specific, concrete steps and heal.
