Poem - Not Quite a Blog..

Robin Saenger ·
Christine "Cissy" White is probably a familiar name to most of you. If not, check out her wonderful writing which was and is totally inspiring to me. I first "met" her through the Parenting With ACEs site - wonderfully written in her own authentic voice. It was her writing that made me consider the possibility of writing in my authentic voice as well and led me to eventually post several blogs. Then, at the December MARC Convening in Philadelphia, I met Cissy in person. I shared with her...

Childhood PTSD and Avoidance: Learning to Be OK in Groups (Resilience Series)

Anna Runkle ·
It’s super common for those of us who grew up with abuse and neglect when we were small, to feel as adults that we are on the outside somehow. When we're in groups we feel as if we are only partly in it, and never really included . Or we start as a full participant but pull away over time. We un-include ourselves. But it feel like other people are keeping us out. The telltale sign that being on the outside could be a personal choice, even when it doesn’t feel like it, is that we’re almost...

Anna Runkle ·
For those of us who grew up with abuse and neglect at home, it can be hard to know how to ACT in social situations. Here's an example.... Have you ever been to a hotel where there is a person who is there to carry your bags, and even though you didn’t ask, they carry your bags to the room and it’s totally awkward, and you think “I’m supposed to give them a tip, right? I’ve, like seen this on TV. But you don’t have cash, and they’re just standing there ," and you think, "What do I do? What do...

Re: Poem - Not Quite a Blog..

Robin - This is so hauntingly beautiful. I have read it four times and am so moved by it. Though we have spoken several times, and at length, this glimpse into your life and being is almost more telling and connecting than our calls. Almost. Please keep sharing your poetry. For me this touches another place that needs some healing. I am sure I am not alone. Peace and thank you! c
