ONGOING SELF-COMPASSION is a powerful catalyst for trans-MUTING the voice of a tyrannical inner critic who was born out of internalized TOXIC SHAME. I didn’t mention it in the video because it was already loaded with so much juicy-juice, but I wanted to invite you to use self-compassion as an inner backdrop while watching the … More When championing yourself triggers trauma #triumph #TEATIME #codependency #CPTSD #CPTSR – every #Coach #Therapist #Healer should know this

Stop Damming It. Can tears magically transmute trauma? 11 reasons we hold them back. (Codependency, CPTSD, CPTSR)

The more I learn about tears (especially those of compassion for others and/ or self-compassion), the more magical they feel to me. But when I stop and think about it, it’s actually quite logical. We are feeling-beings. And when feelings get stuck, we humans tend to either explode or atrophy – simply because the feelings … More Stop Damming It.
