Today Therapist Samantha Bishop is back to help Mickenzie and Christopher explore how trauma impacts our relationships with the people around us. We often say that we're hardwired for community, but the effects of trauma have real consequences on our relationships, in this episode, Sam helps us assess how we can regain a sense of connection and safety.
"If it takes you 100 times to hear this, I hope you can accept that you're worth getting help. You're worth reaching out to. You're worthy of connection. You're always worth that, and you always deserve that."
