This is very insightful and resonates a great deal with me. I have never known any other life so I often find it difficult to assert myself or to know how to behave in social situations because I have never really interacted with other people before. I have often felt alienated and this is why.
I would recommend you stop by Lilly’s site – it has some very useful resources.
A post to my page that is resonating with others.
For many of us that were abused in childhood onwards, we don’t have a ‘pre-trauma’ us.
We’ve endured trauma and the consequences of it, since we can remember.
This is very different to having a ‘good enough childhood’ and then experiencing trauma as an adult and has many different challenges.
This leaves a survivor with a sense of not knowing who they really are and we have to create that person as part of healing.
