When relationships leave us traumatised, we often find ourselves repeating a self destructive pattern of behaviour.
It can take a long time to break out of that cycle.
But if you’ve lived through a lifetime of toxic relationships, how do you even begin to heal yourself?
According to Natalie Russel, the path to recovery from traumatic relationships begins when you choose to focus on your own transformation.
In this episode of The Wellness Entrepreneur Podcast, I speak to Natalie - a self esteem and relationship recovery coach - about the choices that slowly start a healing journey, and how to approach your trauma with compassion and acceptance.
Listen to the full episode, where we talk about:
- how Natalie chose the pain of change rather than the pain of staying stuck
- how the world is waking up to wellness being a priority and not a luxury
- learning to quickly course correct every time you find yourself slipping back
- how she found that clients who are ready to invest in themselves are less resistant to changing
- why having a coach is like having someone outside the frame see your whole picture
One of the ways we sabotage our own recovery from traumas inflicted through toxic relationships is by trying to change the people we meet later, so we can have some control over new relationships.
But this is how we keep ourselves tied to the hurt and pain of the past. It ruins every new beginning from the start.
This is why Natalie strongly advises that your first focus should always be on mending your relationship with yourself. Everything you value flows from it.
