Every human has a past, present, & future that requires change, endings, transitions or “messy middles”, & new beginnings.

Change, desired or not, stretches normal ways of coping; it challenges the status quo & invites opportunities for growth.  The developmental life cycle & your relationships also prompt opportunities for growth.  All of these factors contribute to the chapters in the Story of Your Life! 

While I am trauma informed, a trauma survivor myself, & work with trauma survivors, I know ALL of us face “stuff” as humans.  We all face change, lifespan/developmental cycles, & seek connection in our relationships.

There is a mystery that unfolds as your chapters are written in the Story of Your Life.  Some things CHANGE & some stay the same.  Some chapters are more joyful & some carry more heartache.  Wherever you are in your story, I know that HOW you experience your Self, your RELATIONSHIPS, & the world are central to the quality of your one precious life.

Your RELATIONSHIP beliefs, needs, & expectations about your Self, “others”, & the world/community are largely influenced by your attachment style.  Your history of being cared for influences your beliefs about reaching for support, how to do so, & what it means when your bids for connection are not addressed.  Each person you interact with has their own “backstory” of relationship gifts & challenges.  So, meeting your relationship goals requires awareness of:

  • your strengths & growth areas
  • what’s working & not working (internally & externally)
  • needed skill development (regulation, balance, communication, conflict resolution)
  • support (personal, professional, spiritual)
  • values, purpose, & dreams
  • inner wounds, conflict, & fears

And that is just your part!  Bringing others into the equation makes life more interesting!

Each LIFE CYCLE & CHANGE asks you to bring what you know, hold it lightly, & get comfortable with not knowing again.  It begs the question of:

  • WHO are you, WHAT are you about, & HOW do you choose to BE even in the face of adversity, challenge, change, & opportunity? 
  • How do you re-orient & RESET? 
  • Do you turn towards or away from the human stuff?  Do you resist or embrace?

So yes, as a survivor myself, I especially “get” the challenges trauma survivors face – the wounds, unmet needs, burdens, & deficits… & also the superpowers of strength, resilience, & wisdom. 

AND I “get” the challenge of simply being HUMAN!

Your story is worth knowing, exploring & supporting.

If you would like support for your chapter (past, present, or future), I hope you reach out to RESET!
