#010: INSIDE THOUGHTS OUTLOUD: The Comfort of Trauma Bonding

It's Free
As Seen On...

“Whether we realize it or not, we are in a time of trauma being triggered, but more than anything, grief triggered…our world is grieving.”  
Dr. Enjolie Lafaurie  

Welcome to our new special series called “Inside Thoughts Outloud: Thoughts During a Pandemic!!” We are truly in a time of uncertainty. This pandemic is triggering many memories, emotions, and thoughts –– some new, but some that bring us back to a painful past. We have created this podcast series to allow you to join the conversation about the insights you have gained during this time in our lives. We encourage you to share your story and feel connected! 

To launch off our series, we opened up a space for others to share the difficult emotions and thoughts this pandemic has brought up in their lives. We wanted others to share these feelings, but also encourage a collective change in the way we see these emotions to allow ourselves to make new decisions for how we will be from now on. 

We got so many beautiful responses to this question! We had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Enjolie Lafaurie about the response she submitted. She discusses the idea of trauma bonding and the intensity of shared feelings within our relationships.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • I discuss the emotions and memories that have been brought up for me during this pandemic and what I will do to work through these feelings. 
  • We hear a few of the many amazing phone submissions we received. We hear others talk about working through feelings of abandonment, loneliness, and insecurities that affect relationships. 
  • We speak with Dr. Enjolie Lafaurie about trauma bonding and how she worked through helping a friend during these difficult times while juggling her own feelings. 
  • Dr. Enjolie Lafaurie discussing steps we can take to help ourselves and others work through painful times.
