Give yourself time to sit with this. 💕

(Edited to add that these are not my words. I don’t know whose they are, I just came upon an image of them.)


Trauma reactions look like… fear, withdrawal, aggression, self harm, anxiety, perfectionism, people pleasing, addiction, passivity, poor boundaries… to name a few…


Affirming words may not be our cultures’ strong suit, but that’s also why it’s so powerful when we do actually receive a verbal affirmation.

For those who are new to receiving and giving affirmation, ease into it. Speak it over yourself, to your inner child, and see what resonates. Choose a few that you can say to your child sincerely. See what hits home for them.

Expressing connection and validation may feel cringey and awkward at first—just like learning any new thing—but it’s so worth it when we see the safety and bond that it creates with our children.

Part of why I love speaking/presenting so much is the opportunity I get to broaden my own knowledge, awareness, empathy and connections with others. I had the opportunity today to present on "Pain Management," for a great group of professionals. I will be presenting this same seminar again on Nov 12th of this year, as well as next year on Jan 25th, March 24th and April 27th. More info here:

I wonder if a lot of our parenting struggles arise because we’ve got the wrong job description.
Let’s remember what our job really is!

(Caveat: I don’t think it’s my job to “meet my own needs.” We are social and interdependent beings and some needs can only be met in relationship with others. But it IS my job to recognize my needs, communicate them, and seek ways to have them met.)

Image: on IG

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: two columns of teal text on white background. Left column says,
“not MY JOB
Meet everyone’s needs
Make others happy
To be liked by everyone
Apologize for boundaries
To save/fix other people
Be hard on myself
Take care of the reactions of others
Do everything on my own”

Right column says,
Meet my own needs
Find my own happiness
To like myself
Create clear boundaries
Be of support to others
Give myself gentleness
Be responsible for and tend to my own feelings
Learn how to ask for help”

Rethink the “norms” 👏

I don't need help. - I don't need others. - I'll do it all myself!

Sound familiar??

That was me, and it kept me sick in my addiction and suffering for years. I never understood it was a trauma response. I was afraid of being rejected, and toxic shame had my number.

I learned early on not to trust my parents, especially my father, who I feared. Remember, as children; we must attach and throw out our authenticity. So I learned not to ask for support because I could be hurt and not trust others - even loved ones.

Children are geniuses at surviving by creating stories about the situation as a way to stay safe, even if that means throwing themselves under the bus. Today, if I am triggered ‘not to trust’ I remind myself - to honor little Paul, and it brings me great compassion for adult me. I then recognize its past programming and not who I am.

My distrust came from losing connection to our authentic self because the essential parent-child trust bond was never well established. I became a little boy who believed that it must be my fault if something went wrong. I continued to distrust adulthood, not realizing it was a coping mechanism to shield my heart from abuse, neglect, betrayal, and disappointment from those who could not or would not be there for me.

We can also learn not to trust from the following experiences:
Lovers who offered sexual intimacy but never provided a haven that honoured your heart.

From situations when someone told you "we're in this together" or "I got you" then left you, leaving you to pick up the pieces when s**t got real, leaving you to handle your part and their part, too.

We learned along the way that we just couldn't trust people. Or that we could trust people, but only up to a certain point.
Extreme independence, sorry to say, is a trust issue coming from some unhealed (possible unknown) trauma.

Trauma healing is still in its infancy. We are the pioneers in the recovery of multiple generations of trauma. Our parents, grandparents, etc., would have no insight on the importance of the effects of trauma on children and themselves.

We can all be pioneers in the healing of the world.

Remember: No one is born with the belief - I am not worthy or said, "give me some trauma with a side of addiction.'

Compassion – More Compassion – Deeper Compassion.

The good news is that trauma that can be acknowledged is trauma that can be healed. In fact we can then thrive and help many others do the same.

Have a wonderful weekend
Paul Noiles
