Healing Thought of the Week: We have no simple problems

We have no simple problems or easy decisions after kindergarten. (John W. Turk)PTSD, Healing Thought of the Week

It would be nice if the decisions, choices and actions necessary in PTSD recovery were as easy as seeing the lines and coloring within them. Yes… going back to a simpler time would be nice but there’s nothing truly nice about PTSD recovery, is there?

Instead, there is only work to be done. And how lucky to be an adult with all the wisdom you possess from what you’ve learned before during and after your trauma?

You’ve got skills – skills you haven’t even noticed yet. How do you wish you could act during PTSD healing? What would it take for you to develop that skill?

You have enormous healing potential. The goal is learning to access it.

Dig deep. You can do this. I believe in you!

It is possible to conquer the past and create the future – the first step is choosing to take the journey.
