Cultural Quote #389: Trauma And Disassociation

From the childhood trauma lens, dissociation is the story of surviving our upbringing by not being fully present for the abuse. And it’s actually an amazing survival instinct and a natural tool that happens in humans. What sucks about it is that we stay in it in various ways until we do our trauma work, which is the return of being safely in our bodies, having a new healthy belief system about ourselves, as well as releasing a lot of what happened to us.
