How do you release the trauma that builds up in your body?
Recently I have noticed my body remembering the trauma of my friend cutting me off last year. It has been remembering how severe my sadness was. I have been a little bit more tired and reaching out to people for connection.
I made a new altar beside my bed, I am watching comforting shows, enjoying my family and the beautiful weather. The little things. The little things I had wished for for such a long time have come true lately. Just because someone isn’t in my life anymore doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy it.
I planted some seeds to see how much food we can grow. I am embracing who I truly am and not what others see me as. I am making future plans in my personal life, in my business and in my spiritual life.
I am taking new medication to help with my anxiety symptoms. I am happy to say that I am in more control of my depression and lately when I have been feeling it more because of this year mark, I know what to do to stop those feelings from taking over.
I do a lot of scrolling when I start to feel that down. I now know when I do it so I stop immediately and do something that will bring me out of my mind. I use essential oils, talk to a friend or put on a fun show or movie. Spending time with hubby always seems to lift the spirits as well.
It can be pretty simple to bring yourself back from going into the dark depressed state. Drinking sweet tea, sitting on the porch, playing in the pool, taking a walk. You don’t have to be on medication or spend money to feel better. I take medication because it helps me and I am no longer ashamed of that fact.
I am able to embrace myself and my life, enjoy my family to the fullest and find joy in the everyday now and that’s the most important thing. I hope you can find this too!
