An audio journal discussing my relationship with coping mechanisms (porn, food, alcohol/drugs, spending money, avoiding, etc.): what they offer me, how they hinder me, and how I've watched them shift.
I also talk about:
when SOOTHING becomes SELF-HARM;
coping mechanisms as SURVIVAL strategies;
FEAR of INTIMACY and touch;
my Dad's burnout/depression;
addiction & bulimia;
understanding "I am my parents and I am also not my parents";
the POWER of understanding my emotions;
being hard on my self (and learning COMPASSION);
NOT fixing my self;
the gaslighting experience;
learning how to BELONG;
and SO much more!
