“Posting incessantly on social media about ways to be mindful and “conscious,” and how to live joyously, is possibly ones way of suppressing the emotional pain that one may have experienced. It’s ones way of possibly trying to convince oneself that they are healthy, body, mind and spirit.
I once walked in those shoes.
It’s the shortcut to a dead end.
Repetition of positive thoughts (a form of DBT- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) whether mindful thinking, verbal or in writing, can physiologically reset our brain, yet, must cooccur with ongoing trauma therapy, or therapy that is supportive of one’s specific experiences. Otherwise there can never be a holistic type of healing.
We must experience our experiences, at our own pace, in order to heal fully, and to serve and authentically support others.”
