When The Past Visits Again...

Holidays mean lots of lights, food, and gatherings. It can also mean revisiting pains from the past. Some things you can do when this happens:

-find safe people
-develop boundaries and identify what you need
-seek community
-find a therapist

On my blog:

-journal or art to process
-allow chances to repair when others don't honor your experience
-share in smaller bits or allow people to check-in if they're overwhelmed by the emotions involved, yet still want to show care
