From despair to hope

I commonly see folks with intense shame and disconnectedness in their relationships, leading to intense fear and anxiety which then lead to fight, flight, and confusion. This “emotional soup” is very overwhelming for them leading to hopelessness, despair and experiential avoidance which then leads to more shame and disconnectedness.  

It’s a common pattern we see in primary care isn’t it?

But most patterns can be changed once aware, “zoomed out” and defused perhaps.
