[mini hype] Self-awareness can be lonely
Before we get into this mini hype, I wanted to remind you about my upcoming 4-month mastermind/virtual hug space/group coaching program, From Work to Worth. Click the button below to learn more and apply.
Hi friends! I wanted to bring a mini hype to you from my first post “What is intergenerational trauma? And how do you heal it?”
I found this snippet from the piece:
So how do we heal intergenerational trauma?
The first step is always awareness. And with awareness comes learning and unlearning. We are all unique individuals. If you have a sibling who was raised under the same parental figure(s) as you, I’m guessing they reacted in ways that were different than you. Yet, there are similarities to your experiences.
This made me think…what if you’re the only one in your family or friend circle who seems to have this awareness? It can be quite isolating. You might wonder why you’re the only one who cares…but you also might be gaslit because you’re thinking about this at all. Maybe you get comments to just “move on” or your awareness is minimized.
For me, most of my closest friends are absolutely amazing and open to talking about this. Thankfully, the friendships I’ve cultivated are with people who really reflected on life and had a high level of self-awareness. Though, this wasn’t always the case with my family. I’m grateful that I’m able to have more conversations with my brother around this, and sometimes even with my mom—but it wasn’t always that way.
So I’d love to hear from you. What is your experience with this? Please let me know about your experience, challenges, and support you’ve received.
