How do you embrace life after abuse? How can you feel joyous, living with the after effects of such horrible trauma?
Embracing life isn’t about having a perfect life. It’s about finding joy and happiness and love even in the midst of hardship—something that us survivors of abuse have faced plenty of.
Despite the unique struggles we have all faced, there are some key things that create a foundation from which joy can grow.
Then, it’s important to accept what happened in your past. It will only drag you down to resist the truth of the abuse you faced. By accepting it, you can liberate yourself from a substantial amount of pain.
(By the way, if you have some doubts about the healing power of acceptance, I’d suggest checking out this video!)
Having a good life—one we can truly embrace—is something all of us survivors crave (but many of us have no idea how to get).
So, that’s why I created this video. To help you finally embrace life, even though it started out with trauma and pain.
