DEF, definitely a problem area for me, but a worthwhile path to continue to pursue. This is a great list, simplifying a complicated indirect process into manageable steps.

Thank you for this positive information, please keep it coming,
Sam

It a very good article F. A.

Increased awareness brings increased insight and understanding and that can only help in recovery. I was told by one T to stop reading, questioning and accessing such a mountain of information. I know the intent was so I would not become like a first year medical student coming down with every new disease or condition learned. However, it helped me more easily see which path fit more in line with my past and state of mind.

I liked this one in particular:

10. We Can Give Our Trauma Away
Spirituality is an important component to recovery. In developing a renewed belief in a force greater than ourselves, we can experience transcendence, the ability to be lifted above the present moment, and into that space where we can share our discomforts with another, literally giving them over to be managed. Whether this is a deity, or the group, is not important. What is important is that you feel a space between your pain and yourself so that you can process what is occurring, a powerful tool in the recovery arsenal.


I am not a religious person yet this is really an ongoing gift of the WoR and my MS group in my city. This communal sense of belonging with a common bond and understanding is key. Yoga, exercise and mindfullness and/or anything that take us out of ourselves is more powerful than I could have envisioned.

Thanks again.

I look at it as love. Love can transcend anything and once we have love of self we can feel that buffer between the pain of abuse and us.
