Does this sound like you?

Struggling with trying to save everyone but yourself

Still keeping trauma in to protect family members

Feel the urge to be strong all the time

Lashing out and unable to respond to situations the way you want

Think “petty betty” is an effective way of communicating your feelings

Tired of not showing up as the best version of yourself

You derserve to show up as the best version of you!
