Do you ever wonder whether your life could be different... better somehow... but can’t imagine how? Could it be that some of the ways you live your life are just ways of "getting by" as a victim of your past?
To be a victim is to suffer, be deceived and cheated, and be sacrificed, according to Dictionary.com. To stop suffering, to stop sacrificing our real selves to the deceits and cheats of the past, we must let go of that label. We must become a person who refuses to be sacrificed, and become one who "continues to function or prosper in spite of" our pasts. We must, at least, become survivors.
Telling ourselves stories of survival is a great leap forward from telling ourselves stories of victimhood. Even better, we can tell ourselves stories of thriving. We can narrate how we prosper, are fortunate, and successful. We can tell the story of how we grow or develop vigorously, and how we flourish.
In this episode of Productivity to Profit, Dr. L. Carol Scott, a trauma-informed developmental psychologist, TEDx speaker, author, trainer and coach, shares how the first 2,500 days of our lives determine our skills for relationships - ALL relationships - for the rest of our lives.
Whether your trauma and pain were suffered in your body, your mind, or your spirit/heart, Dr. Scott explains how you can rewrite your story and get past the hurt, so you can heal and thrive.
These shifts are within your grasp. So, join Cathy Sexton and Dr. Scott as they explore how past experiences or trauma can affect us into adulthood, and how we can shift to surviving and thriving despite our pasts.
