& the Bureau of Emotional Labor
This. Each and every word is felt in my empathic wounded soul. Thank you for speaking the truth. It gives me the hope to speak about my own.
Beautifully stated. I am a trauma therapist and I work with survivors of sexual assault. Many live in the freeze response of telling their story. I use the polyvagal theory as a lens in which I provide therapy and help clients befriend their nervous system. Once our nervous system feels safe and connected we can begin to speak those words which have kept us frozen. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
