Past Trauma Triggers

Hi There.

I hope that you had a good weekend. I certainly enjoyed it, although the weekend really goes too fast.

Everyone has gone through things in their past, so I want to go through a few signs to look out for when someone’s past trauma has been triggered.

  1. Zoning out
  2. Not making eye contact
  3. Wanting to be alone
  4. Avoiding contact with people
  5. Going silent
  6. Struggling to focus and breathe
  7. A general feeling of being unsafe

If you notice anyone feeling like this, be patient, kind and offer them a safe space.

All The Best,

Growing Is Part Of The Journey

We grow everyday. But growing looks different to each of us. Through growing, we might experience or notice behaviours that we didn’t even know we could do.

Growing can look like the following:

  • Going to therapy to treat past trauma.
  • Learning to trust others.
  • Creating connections that are meaningful.
  • Taking care of your health through diet and exercise.
  • Living in alignment with your values.

What else can you add?

Also, when thinking about growth, please don’t compare your journey to someone else. We all grow at our own pace.

All The Best,

The Sun Is Shining

I hope your week is going well.

Life is challenging but also provides us with personal growth. We always grow and learn.

The thing about life is that we can’t control what happens to us in life, but what we can control are the next steps that we can take.

We can overcome the set backs. When we aren’t where we thought we should be, it doesn’t mean that things are as bad as they seem. The thing is, healing is an ongoing process.

Celebrate the small wins daily. There are brighter days ahead.

All The Best,

When You Don’t Have It All Together

I want to talk about having it all together. 

There is a lot of value in being positive and happy. 

When someone asks “how are you?” Think about what your response is. Is it umm “I’m okay”, “I’m good”. 

Think about the ways that you are doing good and the ways you are not. 

When you actually open up and face how you actually are feeling, you are open to healing and getting support. 

Today, think about stillness. 

Be real and honest with yourself and ask:

  1. What are you struggling with?
  2. Where are you not feeling so good?
  3. Where do you not have it all together?

When you answer these questions honestly, we can start giving ourselves what we really need or ask for help. 

Opening up is allowing myself to be honest with myself and how I can look after myself and what can I do better?
