Today I got to help 22 people start a new part of their lives. I got to help them through a day of firsts when everything seems overwhelming to them. I was one of the voices of reason when their nerves were jumbled. What a great feeling to be someone who can be the calm in the storm for someone. What a great way to feel I gave back!
That is important for anyone, but especially for anyone with CPTSD. So much of my life was chaos, and not a lot of calm was mixed in there. It feels poetic to give the calm now. I’m thankful for the calm now.
