Is it possible for us to raise healthy kids, but we haven’t dealt with our own trauma yet? Does this make us bad? No. We all have wounds, and we’re all doing our best to regulate ourselves so we could not impart the trauma to our children. But the more we heal, the more reliable, the more consistent and the more available we become to our children.
Joining Michelle today is the founder of PRISMA, Greg Wieting. He has helped thousands of people heal from their trauma for 2 decades. He dives into how we can heal our own anxiety, depression, and chronic pain rooted in trauma, so we can be a better model to our children. Greg also talks about why chemical imbalance doesn’t cause anxiety and depression.
“I think the essence of healing is not problem solving or fixing, but it’s presence. There’s nothing broken, bad or wrong. This is something hurt that needs loving intention. The more we develop that capacity to support ourselves with that loving attention, and the wounded parts of ourselves, then the more we can show up to our kids, to our loved ones and to our family.” – Greg Wieting
