“I am growing as I am counseling. I, too, am connecting the dots and realizing why I was a silent sufferer, people pleaser, an over-giver, and rescuer in my family and marriage.
I learned how to adapt to a childhood that was full of silence, secrets, low touch, a depressed mother, a social alcoholic, and insecure stepfather, and a household that shined on the outside but on inside there was pain.
It has taken time for me to see what emotional baggage I brought to my marriage. My emotional backpack was full of suppressed pain, unexpressed needs, silent screams, and unspoken and unrealistic expectations. My marriage started to duplicate my parent’s marriage.
After experiencing the deep heartbreak of grief from my friends, family members, my parents, and my 38 year old son deaths, I am ready to share what my healing journey taught me about resiliency, moving forward, and re-calibrating my emotions and strengthening my faith to combat prolonged and paralyzing depression.
It takes time, courage, and the right support to heal from a bad memory or trauma from; abuse, neglect, abandonment, poverty, divorce, and harassment on the job/police/teacher, dysfunction, secrets, and hurt from your childhood or past broken relationship.
I cannot count how many women I have had counseled, coached, listened to, and prayed with about their past hurt. They are very sad or very mad, sick, full of shame or need medication to get through the day. They have buried their emotions and stories to survive. Instead of expressing their rage and pain, they turn the rage inward.
Whether you realize it or not, all emotions, suppressed or unexpressed, affect your finances, relationships, and most of all your health (e.g. physical, mental, and emotional). Those hurt emotions (e.g. not feeling safe, loved, hugged, seen, encouraged, or acknowledged as a child) are a ticking bomb.
You can find yourself triggered by smells, sounds, a movie, a funeral, a wedding, your boss, your mate, an argument, demands of your time, exhaustion from caring for others, a baby crying, a holiday, an act of betrayal, broken promises, etc.
Are you tired of feeling stuck, angry, sad, tired, or sick?
Are you feeling like something needs to change?
Are you tired of feeling hopeless?
Do you feel like success, love, money, and happiness are calling you?
