Attachment Wounds

What is particularly distressing about intimate relationships can be … the intimacy itself, depending on your attachment style. Your past wounds/hurts/insecurities/whatever you want to call it regarding being in any type of relationship and relating to other individuals emerge when you’re in an intimate relationship. “Emerge” may be too soft a word, sometimes your issues […]

Wellness Wednesday

Today I had a bunch of ideas about what topic to write about… shame, trauma, sleep… but I am choosing connection/relationships for this week because connecting with others has been…. has always been … rather difficult for me.

My chest hurts right now… I […]

High Functioning Anxiety 7

I haven’t been doing very well. I think that having to be “on” most days, doing groups, teaching, being in class, etc, is all just taking a toll on me. I knew this semester would be trying, but I didn’t realize how assaulted I would feel. It has been hard for me to get out […]
