I applied for and got accepted into a 3 month program for improv, which will result in a few public performances at the end of the 3 months.
One thing my recovery from CSA in the last few years has taught me was to learn to trust my heart, to follow my heart, and to take risks while following the intuition of my heart. It has led me to taking several uncomfortable steps in directions my mind would say I'm crazy for pursuing. But each time I followed my heart, I have experienced immense growth.
Improvisational acting seems to have some sort of direct and profound impact on PTSD symptoms. I shall follow this path as long as I can, until I find that my heart leads me somewhere else.
It's a heroes journey, and you are the hero.
