CHILDHOOD PTSD (CPTSD) AND LONELINESS IN RELATIONSHIPS



❤️Have you ever felt alone when you were with someone else, or in a broken relationship?

This video explores how those of us from CPTSD childhoods or experiences might find ourselves using attachment strategies of both avoidance and anxious types to often self create our tendencies to isolate or feel alone.

Assuming it’s not your partner so much, but perhaps your own tendencies to keep people at a safe distance to self protect, this video explores how and why we do so, and provides 3 journal exercises as part of the Healing Shame in CPTSD Series.
