I never thought about opening up about my own childhood trauma. It was interesting after listening to a podcast, I remembered her saying “everyone has that inner child who responds to trauma which causes you to have anxiety as an adult.”Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
I never thought of that until I started noticing what causes me anxiety. First, crowds causes me high stress anxiety because when my oldest was 4 years of age, I lost him in a mall located in a nearby city. The feeling of losing my kids and feeling that feeling, even though I found him… the trauma is embedded in my body. it honestly doesn’t leave and my oldest is 21 now and I still remember that feeling after all those years.
I am slowly working on new techniques that help me regulate my anxiety. I also heard of the “5,4,3,2,1 method” which is when you start counting when you first notice your anxiety levels increasing. I honestly have a bad habit of vaping because it’s my outlet when I get anxiety. However, I’m interested in trying this new technique to get my anxiety under control after years of harmful therapies.
I will definitely share my findings, & I’m looking forward to sharing out my findings! Everyday we have a choice to either remaining the same, or choosing to be better!
