Healing Is Not Linear
I’m April (she/her). I’m 28 and from Canada. I am a trauma survivor, and hope to offer support and validation to other trauma survivors. Please read my pinned post for info about my blogs.

It's okay if you still are healing. It's okay if you still don't have the peace of mind you want. It's okay if you still can't completely forgive yourself for past mistakes. It's okay to be angry and sad at what happened to you. It's okay if you are struggling. Don't compare your progress to other peoples. Don't be so harsh on yourself. You feelings and struggles are valid. Recovery takes time, but you will get there. 🌺

Having flashbacks, nightmares and triggers do not make you weak. I promise.

This is my Etsy store! 
Currently, I sell two digital items, and two physical items.
The digital items are:
A digital copy of my book, “A Survivor’s Guilt” which focuses on validation and reminding you are not alone. 
A digital workbook that navigates worksheets through building resilience. 
PS - if you like worksheets/workbooks, I will be offering some on my Patreon at the second tier or above. 
The physical items are: 
Validation stickers: These are sold in groups of 5. You get to choose out of 10 sayings which you would like on them and whether you want pink hearts or shiny gold stickers. 
Validation postcards: There are two and they are sold individually or as a set.
If you like postcards and stickers, the third tier of my patreon involves random shipping physical stickers or postcards to you every month.  
In the future, I have more postcards planned as well as several workbooks about various topics. 
Any purchase from my shop, or subscribing to my Patreon help me immensely.

This is a reminder that sometimes people do abusive things with good intentions. It doesn’t mean that what they did wasn’t abusive. And you’re allowed to feel whatever you feel about it.

“When you’re trying to motivate yourself, appreciate the fact that you’re even thinking about making a change. And as you move forward, allow yourself to be good enough.”

it’s okay to feel relieved when you break an attachment to someone who wasn’t good for you

Falling apart does not erase the progress you've made. You're allowed to fall apart sometimes.

I think another good thing I came to realize was that, in therapy, "acceptance" doesn't mean that something is okay or good. To accept a situation or emotion means to understand that any amount of wishing it didnt happen, pretending it isn't happening, or regressing into maladaptive coping mechanisms will not effectively deal with what's going on. To accept is to acknowledge, to understand what is happening or what you're feeling and cope appropriately and healthily without self-judgement.
