Loving someone with PTSD

Updated: Sep 4, 2019

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.
