I walk in and find him sleeping on the floor sometimes.
I always announce myself when I come home.
I track his triggers and act accordingly.
I show up for him. I am present and open to whatever feelings arise.
I do not take his triggers personally.
I forgive myself when I do not know how to handle things.
I empower him to do what he needs to do to heal.
I give him the agency to decide what is right for him.
I trust him to find the right path in recovery.
I see the gold in his trauma, how it shaped him into the beautiful being that I love with all my heart.
