Definition of dis-ease - a particular quality, habit, or disposition regarded as adversely affecting a person or group of people.
Early experiences of stress and trauma require soothing by caring, consistent parental figures. When that care isn’t available early in life or when stressors are chronic, it can wreak havoc with our worldview, making us feel unsafe and hyper-vigilant.
Psychotherapy helped me understand that I can do something to repair the damage caused by generational dysfunction. I took a big step back back, which is a surprisingly rare act, and studied the inner workings of the mind and how it affected my spirit and soul. Understanding thoughts that produce negative behaviors, emotional triggers, and lead to bad decisions helped me move forward on a healing journey.
