Emotional abuse 💜

I have been working with survivors of many different things, especially domestic violence, human trafficking and sexual assault for many years. Very often I hear people minimize the impacts of emotional abuse by saying things such as” well at least he doesn’t hit me,” “she only yells at me and doesn’t throw things around the house” and “ I know people who have it much worse than me.” These are untrue statements because emotional abuse is clearly abuse. One of the things about emotional abuse is that people devalue it because you can’t see it. You stuff it down and say you will deal with it later, when actually you won’t. This abuse settles inside your spirit, mind and body only to manifest later in destructive patterns, habits and dysfunctional relationships with yourself and others. Avoiding your abuse isn’t healing. Healing happens when you’re triggered and you’re able to move through the pain, the pattern, the story..and walk your way to a different ending. Yoga, meditation and Reiki teach you how to see your true self from a different perspective with the tools of introspection, compassion, kindness, courage, grace and love. There is no way to heal yourself without feeling it. You can release what is no longer serving you, as it once did, to make space for healing, giving yourself permission to honor your soul. You are a soul living a human experience and your soul always deserves the best version of you. Be kind always to yourself and others. I am here for you, I believe in you and you are not alone ❤️
