I’m almost surprised that the cogs of my brain can’t be heard clanking with all the wrangling, wracking, worrying and wondering that’s going on in there.
Momentarily inspired, I’ve just jotted a few suggestions under the title of that third list, How Do I Get From One To The Other?
- with the help of the local advocacy service
- by knowing my rights
- by recognising my worth
- by being helped to assert my needs and secure ways to have them met
- by learning to be confident that I an deserving regardless of how some have acted as though I was not
I can be very assertive and can advocate for the world and his dog, but the effects of abuse and trauma impede my ability to do it for myself.
