It’s Not About You


People around you will take your recovery personly; it's not about them. There are no quick fixes from trauma, abuse, addiction, PSTD, or any other form of recovery. Knowing what happened to you is only part of the process, we have to do the work, relive the feelings, emotions, and scenes we avoid. When we stop blaming, making excuses and take responsibility for our own emotions regardless of what our lives have been up to this point, that's the start of moving from victim to surviving, from surviving to survivor and finally to thriving and teaching. This Podcast is not about flash, pretending, or promises, just real, genuine, vulnerable, and honest talk.
