Understand the underpinnings of Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can uncover the places in your life that may have set you on a difficult path. When that happens in your family of origin, you can expect it to be highly likely that you’ll attract a difficult relationship, two or ten, into your adult life. It’s not what you want, but it’s what you know. You don’t do it on purpose, but it happens all the same.

Often, that leads to feeling stuck. Then, you may also have difficulty controlling your emotions, or feel angry or distrustful towards the world. Maybe, you feel empty or hopeless.

“Why is this happening to me? I’ve been a good, caring, giving person, and yet it’s never enough.”

Have you had that thought? Or, have you become so exhausted from being worn down and torn down that you simply give up and give in?

How about the feeling that you are completely different than other people, and nobody understands what’s happened to you.

Or, do you avoid friendships and relationships, or at least, find them daunting and difficult?

These things can be symptoms of C-PTSD, Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Knowing what to look for can set you on a corrective path that can lead you to a healthier, happier life. Lean in and listen to see which, if any, of this episode can provide you with a new understanding of yourself, and your relationships.
