Here’s me, doing my bit to participate weekly in Kelly’s Seven Quick Takes over at This Ain’t the Lyceum, better late than never.
This Week’s Resources for Catholic Trauma Survivors
Takes. Best described as quick. Seven of them.
- In “Reaching Out for Help,” Courtney Vallejo asks, “Why do we wait until we are desperate to ask for help?” [Short answer from me: it’s a trauma response rooted in survival-perfectionism, but go read her post anyway.]
- Trauma survivors have a lot to grieve. I found “To Mourn Neither Maniacally Nor Hopelessly but in Christ” by Adam A. J. Deville a nice reminder on the importance of ritual in grief-sharing.
- I get a lot of good stuff from The Undone Mama. You might, too.
- I know I share Dr. Ramani stuff on here a lot. I love her energy. I also love the lower-key, gentle-parent style of Les Carter. Here’s one of my favorites from him: The “I Release You” Response to a Narcissist.
- This Sunday’s gospel journaling page for trauma survivors goes out before midnight. If you missed it, please sign up here to get yours free through the end of November, 20202.
- I also invite you to join in some discussion over on my Broken Grown-up Nation Facebook page.
- Finally, Boundaries Cuteness for ya from Introvert Doodles:
Also, let me know how I may pray for you? Meanwhile, make sure you give Kelly & the SQT crew a look see.
What are your struggles with setting and keeping good boundaries?
