“We are all nothing more than children traumatized with longer limbs.” - Faith Kangero. Admitting to trauma is difficult, overcoming it is excruciating, and then the end is a reward of true self-love. Many elements in life, society, or childhood block us. Admitting you need help is hard, and shame fills all of us quickly. However, if the world is to be better, then WE must be better, and today you will leave this episode with serious tools for recognizing and overcoming your triggers. Our powerful guest Faith Kangero is a mother, a social worker, and the CEO of the Australian non-profit Spirit of Ester and walks us through the realities of trauma, shame, and conversation about abuse which is too often left silence. Faith uses the proven methods with foster youth in Australia to walk us through self-reflection time and understanding feelings. These are not casual quizzes in a magazine, these are real methods that require time and your investment into your action. Of course, when unpacking there are plenty of ups and downs to cover, but being brave and supporting each other’s truth by listening to our talk today, will acknowledge others, and when you acknowledge others, you acknowledge yourself. That’s how we can start.
