These quotes are massively powerful in their simplicity.
Think of how they can apply to the healing process of a dissociative trauma survivor — a survivor of any kind of abuse….. Child abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, domestic violence, ritual abuse, mind control.
I know and I know and I know without a shadow of doubt that horrific, hideous words were said to you during your years of trauma. It was wrong for your abusers to say those words. Wrong, vile, and unacceptable on every level.
I am sure that those damaging words and phrases still can be heard in your mind, in your internal communication, and probably even in your own speech. Removing that trash talk from your mind and your life is essential for your healing, your internal cooperation, and your overall peace of mind.
Have a look at these quotes again. Can you apply them consistently in your life, and throughout your system?
It is critically important for your healing that you no longer believe the negative, derogatory, ugly comments that were said by your abusers. Those horrific words were not truth. They were violence. They were meant to harm you.
You are not what they say. You don’t have to listen to those words anymore. You do not have to accept those words anymore. You do not have to internalize those words anymore.
It is essential that you separate yourself from abuse. You cannot control what abusers say, but you can decide to not listen to them. You can move away from abusers. You can leave abusive situations. You can remove abusive speech from your insiders.
You don’t have to be trapped in their negative mind control. You are who you say. You can be your own self. You can insist on appropriate, healthy, respectful language in your own system.
I can’t say it any better.
It really is important to put these truths into practice. They are simply said, complicated to apply. Now that you are older, you have the ability, the strength, and the resources to make new decisions. You couldn’t remove yourself from the abuse when you were younger, but you can now. Now really can be different from then.
When you are recovering from the abusive things that were said to you, work tediously to replace those harmful words with positive. Remove the tapes that were given to you by abusers. Free your mind from the violence they said to you. Bust the programming. Move your insiders from their worlds of darkness. Find your strengths, your interests, your talents, and build on those.
Fill your mind, your soul, your spirit, your life with words of your own choosing.
You don’t have to let their abusive teachings control you anymore.
You can create a beautiful life full of peace and harmony, inside and out.
I know and I know and I know that you can.
