When you’re in survival mode as a
couple, so much can feel hopeless.
Now, I’m not just talking about hustle mode, where you never allow yourself to stop being busy.
No, I’m talking about the kind of survival where you feel like something terrible is going to happen if you close your eyes for a minute … if you allow yourself to rest.
A traumatic event (or the threat of a traumatic event) can take us there real quick. And your entire body responds.
In today’s episode, I’m not going to tell you how to fix it.
And I’m not going to give you a laundry list of things to do, because if you’re listening to this and you’re just trying to survive right now, you don’t need a huge list.
You need simplicity. You need a few simple tools to help your nervous system to rest. You don’t need a massive self-care list. You need ease.
And I want you to trust that
starting really small is going to give you exactly what you need
right now, which is hope. And a tiny break here and there as often
as you can.
If you’re in survival mode right now, taking care of all the things, let this episode land at just the right time. I’ve been there. I get it. It sucks. And there’s hope.
