There may be a misperception about what it means to witness trauma. In particular this may be confusing when the source of the trauma is not an event, but is rooted in childhood.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
In the latter case, helpers (unpaid/paid) may hear stories of what happened, which can be traumatizing. However the supporters are also exposed to the adaptations or coping mechanisms, which developed as a result of the original source. Repeated exposure to these trauma-based responses may also be a source of secondary trauma.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Two short definitions:⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Coping mechanism is an adaptation to the original traumas. For children who grow up in homes of neglect, abuse, parents with their own developmental trauma, intergenerational trauma, there are be behaviours, responses, and neurobiological changes.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Secondary traumatic stress (which may be vicarious trauma) occurs as a result of exposure to another’s trauma, which in this post is witnessing adaptations.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
What adaptations can be a source of secondary trauma? Not an exhaustive list, but examples might include:⠀⠀
⠀⠀
- Seeing someone repeatedly choose unhealthy relationships.⠀⠀
- Watching a loved one not care for themself.⠀⠀
- Observing someone engaged in lifestyle choices that are not optimal (workaholism, difficulty setting boundaries, misuse of substances, missing therapy appointments, financial mismanagement, etc).⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Obviously, there is much to be added. However, I want to highlight that observation of trauma is not solely about witnessing an event. It’s about exposure to the trauma-based adaptations.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
To close, if you are a supporter of someone with a childhood trauma history, I want to validate you. I want to acknowledge your experiences and your pain. As a partner to a survivor, I see you and I understand.

This is from an interview with @russellbrand for Recovery Today Magazine, and it's so so good. If I could shout this from a rooftop with a megaphone I would.
These words are truth. I heard so many familiar stories in the treatment center and still do every week throughout my recovery.
If you need help, reach out! To me, a friend, family, to your local church, go to an AA/NA meeting, or call:
Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-8255;
Veteran Crisis Hotline 1-800-273-8255; Substance Abuse Hotline 1-855-339-1144.
The hardest thing for me to believe was that there WAS others who could help me - that WANTED to help me.
You are not alone.
WE are not alone. ❤

When you’re stressed or depressed, you may find yourself spending less time on your personal hygiene. Even if it seems really hard to do, make it a goal to give yourself five extra minutes to shower, brush your teeth, brush your hair, or do anything else to make yourself feel cleaner and healthier. ⠀

This is why we came out with our 4th book. Because sometimes activism isn't what it was before. Thanks for letting us share @conscioushealthymama!
#Repost with @repostsaveapp ・・・ This the face of a tired and kind of frustrated mama.
**
I had wanted to go to a rally tonight with my family.
It was a rally to end gun violence and the first political event that has happened in my small-ish town since we moved here a year ago that I could actually go to.
I was super pumped to go.
**
Then, post-dinner fatigue set in.
And my kids were being extra.
And we were already getting a late start.
So we didn't go.
And my activist mama heart felt super guilty.
**
On the other hand, one of the intentions I set for myself today was to listen to my body and to respect her needs.
Lying on this couch and letting my pregnant body rest was something I deeply needed.
It's been a tough weekend physically and emotionally.
I am in the homestretch of this pregnancy and feeling EVERYTHING DEEPLY.
**
I have so much still to do and the baby could come literally any day now.
It's a little stressful.
I don't feel remotely prepared.
**
As an activist, standing up for what I believe in is super important to me.
Showing up in solidarity with other in my community is a part of that, especially since I live in a fairly conservative/purple-ish community.
**
Today I desperately wanted to show up in my community.
I had to show up for myself instead.
It was not an easy choice or the one I make naturally.
And I'm not 100% glad I had to stay home.
I also know it was the right choice.

How do you stay connected whilst working alone?
.
If you have your own business, it often means that you can end up working alone. Comes with the territory you may say, but there are ways around it
.
Last week I spent a day working from home. I was really focused on getting a task finished but it just wasn't happening. I was putting too much pressure on myself and actually, I really wanted someone to bounce ideas off
.
This week, I made sure that I had scheduled meetings and even attended a networking event. Talking to people really got me motivated, got my creative juices going and opened up new opportunities and connections with new partners and clients. All that could've been missed if I hadn't connected with people!

Okay girls, this one's for you! The Louisiana STD/HIV Program is supporting the Black Women and PrEP campaign in partnership with the Black AIDS Institute. Among women living with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana, 82% are African American/Black. We all should come together as a community to ensure that African American/ Black women are aware of HIV risk reduction method including PrEP, an HIV prevention strategy for people who are not living with HIV. #blackwomenandprep #stdprevention #starttheconversation

Sunscreen Swap! ☀️ •
The frustrating thing about deciding to go plastic free is having to use up all the plastic covered products you have lurking in your cupboards before you start on the exciting new stuff! So bottles of out of date sunscream later and I’ve finally managed to test these two chemical free, earth friendly sunscreens.
•
Two weeks in 30 degrees plus heat and I can safely say they are both excellent at providing protection against the rays, if you apply regularly just like most other commercial suncreams.
•
Amazinc @amazincskincare is fabulously pink, smells delicious and comes in a cardboard container. However it is quite thick and therefore takes a while to apply. You can definitely see where you’ve applied it too which has its benefits & disadvantages (bit of a white out until it sinks in! 🤣)
•
Shade is smooth, cream in colour and comes in a tin. It’s really easy to apply but it took me a while to get used to the smell.
•
I found Amazinc on an incredible website @plasticfreedom_ whilst I bought Shade from a local bulk store in Nunhead @bringyourownuk . I’ve also seen it locally at @thesourcebattersea and @wearegather_uk in Peckham too.
•
With the temperatures set to hit 30+ across the UK this bank holiday weekend, there has never been a better time to try them out for yourselves.

Powerful words on trauma from an inspirational man. Don't give up things CAN change. Thank you for sharing your story @mjcr0521❤
Dealing with Trauma: I'm the youngest of 3 brothers. Both my brothers committed suicide. We faced a lot of abuse as children. After multiple failed attempts to assuage myself of pain, and chronic relapse, I came up with a plan to end my life as well; a destitute, emotionally nulled surrender to continue life on life's terms.
Something pulled me back from the edge, and as I stay clean and push forward on my men's trauma work, I have come to find within myself a shred of hope that I can only call a soul. I went to a crisis center, and subsequently to a men's trauma program, where I found solidarity and a place to extol my pain that has certainly kept me alive.
Graduating that program ends the course with a stone ceremony, where the graduate picks a topic, writes it on the stone, and passes it around to the group, where they say a few words and wish them well. 'Gratitude' seems to be wholly important, for everything from reframing, to A literal neurological rewiring of the trauma patterns we have developed in our demon days.
Life is worth living. We will come to know so little of the potential we have if we end it before we discover it's meaning. And it is found in communal goodness and healing, every day. You matter, and we need you here.

Carry a reusable water bottle 💧
•
Such an easy and cost effective swap and one I already had unconsciously made with the kids from the moment they could hold a bottle!
•
Since we have some of the highest quality drinking water in the world and microplastics can now been identified in bottle water, it makes complete sense. Especially when you consider that over 7 billion plastic water bottles are used in the U.K. every year!! That’s double the number just 15 years ago. 😬 •
Plus refilling your water bottle has never been easier thanks to the Refill campaign @refillhq Just download the Refill App and find the shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and even airports that are happy to refill your bottle when you’re out & about. And like so many things, once you recognise the logo, you’ll see it everywhere!! •

And like so many things, once you recognise the logo, you’ll see it everywhere!! • #starttheconversation #plasticfree #saynotoplastic #zerowaste #refillrevolution #reducereuserefuse #greenerplanet #ecofriendly #climatechange #bethechange

Okay so look aside, my pizza tasted the best. But to be fair, Croatians have a side of food with their olive oil so Jenn was just trying to be fancy and ruined her pizza by dumping way too much on top. But @jenniferselinger remember that time I won at the pizza making contest? 😆
•⠀
I’m an introvert...It will usually not be me starting a conversation. So when this lady asked us if we wanted to make new friends with the men down the alley 🤣 true story, I was mortified. But it led to a very memorable night. The owner (in the hat) had owned the pizzeria for over 30 years and opened up his pizza shop after hours for us and showed us how to make pizza from scratch, even offered to bring our whole yacht crew the next day and show them too. We then sat for hours talking about food, how old the walls were ( 800- 2000 years old people!!!) eating Pizza and laughing...a lot. ⠀
•⠀
This moment, this experience will forever be engrained in me. See, although I’m introvert, im in love and addicted to exploring new places and will always say yes to a new adventures, and this was certainly one ☝️ . ⠀
•⠀
Although I do not encourage you nor condone making friends with men in alleys 😂, I do challenge you to make yourself uncomfortable by starting that conversation. You just never know where it may lead. And course, lucky you if you have a professional friend maker by your side 😉 •

This week on #UnmaskingTheStigma I’m speaking with Katie from @thebusybadge
Katie is the creator of The Busy Badge and is a coach who helps students and graduates out of overwhelming perfectionism and into productive, action taking high achievers.
The Busy Badge was found when it represented everything that used to be Katie’s life, as a young and ambitious student, she constantly wore busy as a badge of honour which ultimately led to her own burnout from perfectionism.
Katie shares more about her story behind The Busy Badge and how she turned her own experiences into a sustainable coaching business. Katie also breaks down the myths of perfectionism, what it’s really like working with a coach and provides practical tips to staying focused, being productive and taking action.
If you’re guilty (like me!) of wearing busy as a badge, are a student, or someone who struggles to take action and stay focused, then you’ll want to read more! As always, you can find the link in my bio 💜

'One of the things that is really our responsibility in the community is to help raise awareness and advocate. And it's really to advocate that mental health is health. And to start to talk about it in terms that helps break down the stigma that surrounded mental and behavioral health for so long. And I think we're starting to see some of that happen and we just want to help accelerate that. We want it to be a point where, because we work so much with youth and adolescents, it's our primary mission that you don't have to feel shame. Or feel stigmatized because they are dealing with something and want to seek help. We would never shame someone that had an upset stomach for going to a doctor. So why on earth would we do that for someone who — particularly our youth — who has recognized in their self that something just doesn't seem right. Why would we make it any less accessible for them to go and seek help?
We tend to think about folks who are dealing with mental and behavioral health issues as others. It's those people, that's not me. And so it really is bringing people to the realization and acceptance that yes, it’s others. And it's also my family and my neighbors. It's everyone and it is a community issue. We need to tackle it as such. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Life can be a messy ride sometimes. It's easy to feel like you have no idea what you're doing. And that's ok. No one has everything figured out all the time. But here are two main things I've learned in recent years.⠀
⠀
1. There is absolutely no point in trying to follow anyone else's blueprint. Your life is your own, and you have to follow your own path. Trying to fit into the timeline of expectations (must have graduated by a certain age, or be married, or have a family, or whatever anyone else says you should have done by a certain point) will only lead to frustrations. Instead of focusing on what you should have done, try focusing on everything you have already achieved, and on all the things ahead of you. Take every day as it comes, rather than focusing on what should have already happened.⠀
⠀
2. You MUST, and I cannot stress this enough, you really have to take care of yourself /before/ you can take care of someone else. You have to give room to yourself to validate your own feelings and cater to your needs. Because you're the only person that has real knowledge of them and the ability to do so.⠀
For a really long time, because of my boyfriend's anxiety, I felt like my feelings were less valid. I just kept telling myself that I had no right to get upset about anything, because that would only lead to my partner getting upset, and he's the only dealing with the real issues. So I just forced myself to swallow everything that bothered me, regardless of how big or small, because I didn't want to upset him. But you see, the problem with that is that those things start adding up. And eventually, it got to a point where everything was bothering me and irking me and I wasn't doing the relationship, nor myself, any favors. At the end of the day, I was just generating more negativity by not addressing the things that truly got to me.⠀
The point I'm trying to make is, talking things out is not always pretty. Sometimes, it will generate discomfort in the short run. But in the long run, it will always be better to address the things that bother you when they do so than trying to suppress them.⠀
⠀
Have you ever guys ever faced either of these? How did you deal with the

***UPDATE!!! CHATELAINE HAVE UPDATED THEIR ARTICLE TO A SHOW A MIDDLE AGED WOMAN WORKING OUT!! (ME ACTUALLY)*** #smallvictories
Pretty cool that I got a shout out in Chatelaine magazine this month!!! Check it out. This is part of a series that Katie Rae did about menopause, and she really does a great job of representing us. Unfortunately Chatelaine have dropped the ball big time on this - check out the photo! This woman is probably 25 years old and most likely NOT in perimenopause. I'm as tired as shit about this type of imaging. I could have provided them hundreds of fitness photos of women our age! All this type of imaging does, is reinforce the fact that we are not considered 'fitness' material, we are irrelevant. This is not good enough!

Here are some signs of a manipulator. sadly, there are people in this world who are toxic. people who leech on others, abuse, lie, cheat, hurt, and use. some of these people have a mental illness, commonly narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder - but it can be a number of reasons to cause a person to manipulate. not every toxic person is ill. i think it’s incredibly important to know signs of manipulation, to protect yourself from becoming a victim of these people. if you recognize these signs in someone in your life, i recommend you to contemplate on that relationship, and whether it’s worth it to keep them close to you. and if you recognize any of these signs in YOURSELF, i urge you to seek professional help, because this is something you can try to work on, and heal from. •

Those that know me know that I like to talk about the 'hard stuff'. Topics that people usually ignore or feel super uncomfortable bringing up...no matter how important. But you see, what I've learned is that change & progress won't happen if we don't talk about it.
With that being said, let's chat RACISM. I'll admit it ...this topic has made me feel uncomfortable in the past. I didn't quite understand it, how present it actually was and the lack of conversation behind it all. But to be honest, I’ve never taken the time to LISTEN. I’ve been quick to formulate my own thoughts based on what I read & saw. As Pastor Morris would say, I was an #ignorantwhiteperson (you'll have to listen below to get it haha). Racism is STILL happening and in ALL forms...hate, superiority, and prejudice. And we, ALL people, can help make a change by talking and educating... Cue the “Lack of Understanding' sermon. I've been on a Robert Morris kick lately. I love the 'feel good' sermons and they will always have a place with me, but lately I've been craving educational/biblical truth. Pastor Morris does this so well - he gives me a topic, several points and backs it ALL up with scripture in the Bible...word for word. Not only do I learn more about Jesus and who he was, but I learn the theological & historical context behind it all.
In the sermon below, Pastor Morris gives SEVEN points & scripture to educate Christians on WHY racism is against what the Bible stands for and HOW we can help make a change...If you're WHITE, you need to listen to this. Trust me. I didn't think I needed to either, but goodness #soeyeopening.

Today's post is a little more on a serious note as important eco systems are being destroyed all over the word with fires so large that they can be seen from space. The Amazon is currently on fire and burning at an alarming rate. People in Brazil on the internet are begging people in other countries to share this information as it is currently being suppressed by the media. The more people that know, the more action can be taken. The more pressure can be put on governments to do something as nothing is being done right now. Earth is need of help!! #starttheconversation #savetheamazon #themoreyouknow #informationispower

The Amazon Rainforest. 8/21/19.
This should terrify us all.
This forest alone accounts for 20% of the globe’s oxygen, and it is currently on fire. Climate change is very real...

It’s good to build relationships and network in the right circles. As you can see in this graphic. Private money is the least expensive way to fund a fix and flip! #yournetworkisyournetworth

Nathan's story | Nathan is the head of sales for Southern Cross Austereo, Australia’s largest media organisation. He loves his job but it’s a demanding role and at times can be stressful. With such a busy life and long working hours, Nathan is very conscious about his own mental health and the wellbeing of others.⁠
⁠
He recently implemented a successful self-care initiative in his workplace. Head to the link in our bio to see how he did it and the results!⁠

Reading your words, and it hurts, yes it hurts. Flirting with fate, drawing strength from these nightmares and dreams . . . hope for hearts beating in sync, disaster prevented, and deep honesty. Working through the pain and the sleepless nights. I will fight for you; Will you fight for me? Reading your words, and they work their way to the core, traveling within me forevermore. I hurt for you, long for you, wanna be strong for you . . . though I know that you're already stronger. I wanna belong by you, write my songs for you, carry on for you. The longer we wait, the more time that we're wasting. Let's chase sunsets and moonlight together. Weather this storm, dancing with a smile, curtained by wind and tall wildflowers. The hour awaits the second you miss me. If you dream of the same road, lone tree, porch swing, then I'll see you there. I care so much, that it beats me up when I feel you're down, don't doubt now, when you need to believe in love the most. Find your peace of mind to find love. Chaos needs a host. That isn't who you wanted to be. Reading your words, hearing you screaming . . . and it hurts, yes it hurts; I wish you could breathe deeply. Believe my words, flirting with fate, drawing strength from nightmares and dreams . . . dreaming of hearts beating in sync, and greater times coming up . . . love of my life, will you fight for me? I will fight for you, starting with the words that won't let go, just so you know where my heart belongs. I wanna be strong for you . . . but I already know that you're the strong one. Let our conversation be a long one.

“𝐃𝐚𝐦𝐧 𝐠𝐢𝐫𝐥! 𝐘𝐨𝐮’𝐫𝐞 𝐟*𝐜𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐰𝐞𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐞 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐬!”⁣
⁣
Why is it so hard to look at ourselves in the mirror and say that?⁣
⁣
Listen sister-friend, You have the right to desire ALL of the things.⁣
⁣
The relationship. ⁣
The money. ⁣
The body. ⁣
The inner peace and happiness. ⁣
All. of. it. ⁣
⁣
If you’re in a relationship and there are aspects that are not working for you, you have to say something and set some boundaries. ⁣
⁣
If you’re in a dead-end job and not makin’ the big bucks, you have to look for new opportunities. ⁣
⁣
If you’re unhappy with your body/weight, you have to dive into some self love and self care. ⁣
⁣
So many of my clients feel like they have to justify their desires or they feel guilty for wanting more.⁣
⁣
Because when we look back at our past and we see and feel the trauma, the abuse the self-hatred and unfulfilled expectations of love and support that we didn’t receive that left an open wound for guilt and shame for being who we are to creep in. ⁣
⁣
And those experiences conditioned us to create our current reality. ⁣
⁣
Know this…Your trauma isn’t your fault. ⁣
⁣
But your healing and transcendence to a new life possibility is your responsibility. ⁣
⁣
I know it’s scary, and probably doesn't feel like it's 'fair'. ⁣
⁣
But you can do it. ⁣
⁣
And most importantly you don’t have to do it alone. ⁣
⁣
This is why I have created 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐄𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐮𝐥 𝗪𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐧 𝐆𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐩 𝐂𝐨𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐦. It’s an 8 week program starting on September 8th that will give you the foundation you need to heal every aspect of your life so that you and 𝐅𝐈𝐍𝐀𝐋𝐋𝐘 step into the live that you not only desire but 𝐃𝐄𝐒𝐄𝐑𝐕𝐄. ⁣
⁣
The program is filled with pre-recorded content to, 1:1 hot seat and group coaching and kundalini meditations you will leave a a fresh new perspective and ability to create the life you truly are meant to be living. ⁣
⁣
We will dig deep. We will heal. We will transcend. We will stand together as the Empowerful Women we have always been and are becoming. ⁣
⁣

𝐘𝐨𝐮’𝐫𝐞 𝐟*𝐜𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐰𝐞𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐞 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐬!”⁣ ⁣ Why is it so hard to look at ourselves in the mirror and say that?⁣ ⁣ Listen sister-friend, You have the right to desire ALL of the things.⁣ ⁣ The relationship. ⁣ The money. ⁣ The body. ⁣ The inner peace and happiness. ⁣ All. of. it. ⁣ ⁣ If you’re in a relationship and there are aspects that are not working for you, you have to say something and set some boundaries. ⁣ ⁣ If you’re in a dead-end job and not makin’ the big bucks, you have to look for new opportunities. ⁣ ⁣ If you’re unhappy with your body/weight, you have to dive into some self love and self care. ⁣ ⁣ So many of my clients feel like they have to justify their desires or they feel guilty for wanting more.⁣ ⁣ Because when we look back at our past and we see and feel the trauma, the abuse the self-hatred and unfulfilled expectations of love and support that we didn’t receive that left an open wound for guilt and shame for being who we are to creep in. ⁣ ⁣ And those experiences conditioned us to create our current reality. ⁣ ⁣ Know this…Your trauma isn’t your fault. ⁣ ⁣ But your healing and transcendence to a new life possibility is your responsibility. ⁣ ⁣ I know it’s scary, and probably doesn't feel like it's 'fair'. ⁣ ⁣ But you can do it. ⁣ ⁣ And most importantly you don’t have to do it alone. ⁣ ⁣ This is why I have created 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐄𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐮𝐥 𝗪𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐧 𝐆𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐩 𝐂𝐨𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐦. It’s an 8 week program starting on September 8th that will give you the foundation you need to heal every aspect of your life so that you and 𝐅𝐈𝐍𝐀𝐋𝐋𝐘 step into the live that you not only desire but 𝐃𝐄𝐒𝐄𝐑𝐕𝐄. ⁣ ⁣ The program is filled with pre-recorded content to, 1:1 hot seat and group coaching and kundalini meditations you will leave a a fresh new perspective and ability to create the life you truly are meant to be living. ⁣ ⁣ We will dig deep. We will heal. We will transcend. We will stand together as the Empowerful Women we have always been and are becoming. ⁣ ⁣ Comment below what you are ready to release and DM me for more info 😘
