Animals are wired to “leave the nest” after learning what they need. It’s just how God made them.
I have shared with you that I struggle with codependency and Complex PTSD. It’s an ugly and can be an exhausting combination. Well today they are in full force, and I’m struggling to breathe within myself. I’ve shared some about Complex PTSD. Codependency Brain is similar to an ADHD brain-simply because it is wired differently. ADHD is something one is born with. Codependency is not, however it is something that becomes engrained to have you thinking backwards. I’m posting a link for those who need a better definition. While it talks about a specific book, I’m not advertising that. It simply has a great explanation of how are brains think and why telling us we are too sensitive is a jerky thing to do. 🤷🏼♀️
I can read this and one step in healing is recognizing that I do these things. It’s a scary thought for someone who’s only believed purpose is to be helpful. I never want anything but good for other people; and then I fall apart. And there’s guilt, and all the other ugly emotions that take over. We have a hard time dealing with facts vs. emotion. Something I’m desperately working on. Some call me an empath. I don’t how that applies except I feel other people. A blessing and a curse as they say.
Praying this helps someone see things a little clearly, or let’s someone know they are not alone.
