Trauma Thrill: The Relapse Connection

I discovered a relapse connection in many of my trauma life coaching coachees and that connection I discovered was the “trauma thrill”. A trauma thrill is the act of reconnecting to an old trauma relationship and lifestyle through a new traumatic experience. The result is old behaviors and mindsets seem to re-attach themselves to the survivor even after years of successful growth and recovery.

Mistakes in Our Life

Part of authentic life is that in everything we do in our personal life or jobs, we sometimes will make "mistakes". Many have heard from me that no one is perfect and if you are perfect then you do not need to get out of bed because you have done everything in life. I believe that " If you do not make a mistake you cannot learn and move forward." So here is a quote on the subject of mistakes.....
"Don't let the past mistakes or overwhelming life events define you or determine your future. We all make mistakes, but we cannot allow them to define who we are."
