"All healing is essentially the release from fear."
When we experience anger it is because we have reached a degree of perceived separation that is so 'real' that we feel utterly alone. In that state of apparent aloneness we are left with what seems to be no choice but to lash out, blame others and defend our existence.
But you are never alone and you are never separate and the path to deep peace is easily within reach if you allow it.
The implication of this quote above from the great Roman stoic and Emperor Marcus Aurelius is that we look outside of ourselves to know ourselves. It is my opinion then that in doing so we diminish ourselves and in fact contrary to the former part of the quote, we love ourselves less. Not less than we love others but less than the complete state of love that we should have for ourselves. It is this lack of self love that stifles our confidence and puts us on unstable ground in whatever we may endeavor.
When you can step into self-forgiveness and self-compassion you can experience self-love. And from that self love you can do, be and have anything you want. That is true self-confidence.
Trauma is a tricky word to throw around. This is because trauma can come in so many forms and as is the case with so many things, unique to the individual. Some people who had what most would consider to be a traumatic childhood or who have gone through what most would consider a traumatic event even in their adult life, seem to, at least outwardly, come out completely unscathed.
While others were overwhelmed and had their lives derailed by what might seem like insignificant events. It is the persons' response to the trauma that matters as much or more than the trauma. It is also the relationships that are involved in the trauma that matter. When we are overwhelmed or traumatized we have needs that are not being met at that specific point in time. Whether it be an unmet need of safety, belonging, acceptance or whatever fundamental needs is not being met, it is in that unmet need and in that relationship that the path to true personal healing lays.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
