Signs you are healing: - More observing, less judging. - More responding, less reacting. - More self love, less self sabotage. - More boundaries, less resentments. - More inner peace, less outer chaos. - More clarity, less confusion. - More faith, less fear.

Yes! Exactly! That's how it all started, with the venerable Dr Sigmund lying to protect his child abusing buddy.

There also seems to be a fear of psychotherapy that does focus on trauma, this belief that therapists will overcomplicate your life by dredging up unnecessary or fabricated memories rather than sourcing the cause of dysfunctions and working through it.

It simply makes no sense. It feels as if most institutions are set to to protect abusers (which goes for racial abuse too) throwing us back to a time before PTSD when war veterans were simply considered weird.

Similarly, there are parents (and teachers at private schools) who send children for counselling which makes no reference to childhood or relationships. Like a throwback to the 50s and the "problem child" & the identified patient.

It continues to shock me that the conversation on mental health can continue without reference to trauma or abuse, as is depression and anxiety simply fall from the sky like curses flicked from the hand of the almighty.

Bukowski: I hate myself. I’m ugly and I hate myself. I like to drink and fuck and feel ugly and hate myself. I’m a disgusting piece of ugly shit. Young men: I want to be this man.

Having an Instagram personality doesn't mean you post a lot. It means you permanently project an image of ease, perfection and living the high life

It's true that we are all one and we should all practice peace & love, but we mustn't use this to deny past abuse or injustice or trauma. The first step towards healing lies in facing reality, all of it, past and present, not softening it or making excuses for it.

"Why are bringing that up? Stop being so negative!" It happens with racial abuse too. "Why can't you get over it? That was the past." If we don't acknowledge & integrate traumas we end up disassociated or even schizoid. Denying racism falls within the category too.

While I don't doubt the power of positive thinking, I think it can also be a vehicle for disassociation, or even abuse. We have to accept that bad things happen, or happened, not deny them in the interests of "being positive".
