As we stand firmly by survivors and victims of domestic violence, we become a part of their stories of courage and resilience. We bring our healing energy to the table, but let’s not forget that offering ourselves the same compassion can be just as life-changing. We get it – the stories we hear, the emotions we carry, and the expectations we face can sometimes leave a mark. These challenging times put our strength to the test, often leading to emotions like anxiety, sadness, and even physical discomfort. But guess what? We’re equipped with the power to overcome and thrive, just like the survivors we support. In this exciting session, we’re diving into how stress and tough experiences affect our minds, bodies, and hearts. We’ll unlock the secrets of self-compassion, mindfulness, and emotional strength – stuff that can really make a difference. By taking care of ourselves, we can make a significant impact on those we assist. Let’s embark on a journey towards healing together.
