One Shipwreck Away From a Disaster
Why do you care so much?
Why do some people make such a big deal out of something so small? Or cause drama when there was nothing in the first place? Answer, we live in a world with a lot of hurting people, a lot of insecure people, and a lot of unloved people. And, hurting people hurt people.
Our love and trust formed early in childhood by our parents. We learn to love from our parents example of love. If our parents have learned an unhealthy example of love by not bonding with a parent in their childhood or possibly a mental health disorder we have higher odds of that same cycle being passed down to us. Fortunately, we have the ability to become our own individual selves aside from our childhood examples or traumas. Knowledge is everything.
Books help us identify our ability to become all we can be and to become more. You can elude drama by loving yourself enough to walk away. Be strong and understand you don’t have to allow another person to hurt you because they have been hurt. Most times, sadly, the ones who hurt us the most are those were related to because we are closest to them.
I won’t go into detail about my diagnosis but I will say I’ve been through trauma and a near death experience with cancer. I live with chronic pain from the cancer and surgeries to remove the cancer. I’ve found journaling to be therapeutic. On days I feel the worst it helps just to write it out. Sometimes it’s uplifting to add bright colors. I’ve also found talking with a therapist I trust to be beneficial and reading to help also.
A couple of books my therapist suggested that I’ve found helpful are;
Children of the Self Absorbed by NinaW. Brown
Will I Ever be Good Enough by Karyl McBride
And a couple of books I’ve found are;
Stop Walking on Eggshells by Paul T. Mason
Conflict Free Living by Joyce Meyer
And of course my favorite, the Bible, which has every kind of genre ever written.
