Mindset, how past stress and trauma wired your nervous system, and relationship skills like communication. . . All of these impact how we date, interact in relationships, and shape the type of relationships we have . .which has tremendous impact on the quality of our lives.
When we don’t believe we deserve love or healthy relationships, and/or our nervous systems are wired for protection instead of connection, and/or we never saw/learned healthy relationship skills, we can struggle in relationships until we address some of these root causes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Healing is a layered, complex, and life long journey. But don’t let that stop you from starting. Don’t let beliefs that you don’t deserve or can’t have a healthy relationship keep you from trying. Take action and start to heal your past wounds and rewire yourself to feel safe to connect.
Your body and spirit are so wise and know what to do to heal. You have the answers inside you. Yet as humans with nervous systems and bodies we need support and connection with safe people to change and heal. If you’re ready to make these changes and for some guidance to get there, send me a DM on Instagram!
