While this content can be very healing, it is not always easy to listen to. You may cry or feel angry as you listen. You might even need some downtime afterwards to process. That’s OK! Just make sure you plan a safe time to listen, when you can be free to feel your emotions and let them go, and when you do not have other demands that require your attention.
You’ve got this! But please remember to be kind to yourself along the way.

Patterns and cycles of abuse can affect us our entire lives, especially when we witness and experience it as children.
