PTS has you rooted to a past event. The power of that can cause you to be easily pulled backward. At the same time, any new stressor will have the power to push you back into earlier learned behaviors. It’s hard enough to deal with one power source. However, when you are trying to heal and this happens, it can become too much for anyone.
What to do?
Heal the past so it won’t have the power to pull you backward. Keep moving forward.
