Malunion Fractures

I’ve been told to get good at aligning what I want with actions. What if I don’t know what I want? I’ve been conditioned to act without personal interests. I’m starting to realize being conditioned to act against myself compromises my ability to recognize my own needs. My will was broken in the past and set improperly.

if you don't know what you want, you won't know what you're missing. Enjoy!

I’m in the same situation and it’s really frustrating. Now that I’m finally in a better position to be able to make choices, I find it almost impossible to do that. I know it’s a trauma response that results from being so intensely scrutinized and criticized for every decision I made in the past, making me learn to doubt myself. It’s called the freeze response I think, where you just can’t make any decisions for fear of making the wrong one. I don’t even know what I want anymore, just like you. But bit by bit I’m learning to trust myself again, so give yourself time and don’t be hard on yourself for it.

Thank you. And thank you for sharing what causes this to happen. Hopefully as spring comes, I too will slowly unfreeze.
