I was thinking about my own therapy and it just occurred to me that our latest analogy might help you. It’s not advice, just a way of looking at it.how do I found out who I am as a person trauma happened to without becoming my trauma?
So, I’ve said in my diary several times how Therapist says it’s like we are a big puzzle and the trauma is just like one or two pieces of the puzzle. Maybe even a piece off to the side that you don’t even notice unless you’re looking for it.
Well, this past week in my journal I said that I feel like the things I went through - it’s like it splattered paint all over my puzzle. So trauma crap on everything and it ruined the whole thing. Well, Therapist pointed out that, yes maybe the trauma did splatter paint all over everything, but we can get out a little paint thinner and start cleaning it off a little at a time. Sure, it’s will take time and work, but the puzzle CAN be what it once was.
You will find the SRG that isn’t being defined by your past traumas. I hope therapy was helpful and you came up with a plan :hug:
