Episode Description:

This episode originally aired on YouTube. The link mentioned is further down in the description

Coping mechanisms… we all use them. Unfortunately, most of us tend to cope in fairly unhealthy ways which often leads to a lot of shame.

One of my most watched videos, month after month, is one from 9 years ago. I get emails often from people who find it helpful in making sense of their behavior or choices. With this understanding, we can begin to release shame and practice self-compassion.

This is part of the reason we need to understand things about our experiences and the impact it has.

In today’s episode, I share more on the importance of understanding how we, as survivors, use awareness and understanding for healing.
