  1. Setting Clear and Achievable Goals: Break down your objectives into clear and attainable goals. Avoid vague statements and define exactly what you want to achieve. For example, aim for a healthier relationship with your spouse rather than simply saying you want to “recover from the past.”
  2. Cultivating a Positive Mindset: Even if you’re not naturally optimistic, work on cultivating a positive mindset. Your mindset plays a crucial role in retraining your brain and embracing change.
  3. Focusing on Progress: It’s common to underestimate your progress, especially after a bad day. Counteract this by documenting and celebrating your achievements. Write down positive experiences and revisit them during tough times to remind yourself of your growth.
  4. Prioritizing Self-Care: Self-care is not selfish; it’s self-awareness. Just like in an airplane emergency, secure your oxygen mask before assisting others. Prioritizing self-care ensures you have the energy and well-being to support your family and loved ones.
  5. Avoiding Trauma Comparison: Trauma is not a competition. Never compare your traumatic experiences to someone else’s. Each person’s trauma is unique and profoundly impacts their lives. Instead, focus on empathizing and supporting one another on the path to healing.
