Someone asks, What does healed look like for me?

In my mind I would feel worthy and trust people if I healed.



Somehow I would have a slew of trusted friends.

Worthiness and trust are strangers to my life, criticism and violence were my childhood companions.

Next in public, in social interactions, I would feel free and easy, having a strong desire for community and relationships.

Then my nervous system would calm, spotting danger would subside, feeling connections would replace isolation, and finally at least a week of happy-go-lucky experiences.

Triggers would disappear, intrusive thoughts would be gone, and anxiety would be replaced with a calm confident demeanor.

I would feel secure and safe.

Traumatic memories would be buried and never be resurrected again.

I think I would faint from euphoria.

What would healing look like for you?
