We were secretly engaged! ME TOO! - Trauma Bonding
CW - toxic relationships, emotional & physical
This is a tough one. In today's episode we discuss something that has been one of our most highly requested topics, trauma bonding. We know the world is heavy right now, but something we've realized is that in order to feel lighter ourselves, we must first identify the weight we're carrying around. Through this discussion, which SURPRISE went way longer than anticipated, we felt validated and freed from fears, resentment and guilt that we didn't realize still lived within us even years after leaving. We hope to give you the space to heal as well. This is a 2 part episode- part 1 today, 2 next week. I told you it went long! In part 1, we discuss the 7 stages of trauma bonding and what it can look like inside an unhealthy, toxic relationship. Please skip this episode if you are not in a place to process or bring up or hear some really tough memories. You matter more than a listen. We love you!
