I’ve have only seen glimpses of what it is like to thrive. It feels good when I notice these times.
How do I quantify thriving. It’s a personal thing, as one person’s thriving is someone else’s surviving.
For me it is being self aware and learning to change the limiting beliefs that the abuse has brought in to play. This isn’t easy as from my own journey, Ilike to slip in to these beliefs and then give an excuse. The usual one for me is “Poor little me, I’m the only one”.
In reality I know that I’m not the only one and sometimes need a ‘gentle’ kick up the arse.
I am moving towards the thriving stage but it’s a stretch most of the time.
This of course is my own theory so you can disagree with me if you wish.
