“Whenever someone is faced with a major trauma; they have the ‘fight, flight, or freeze’ response. They either fight their way out of it. Run away from it. Or freeze. And if prior trauma has accumulated then most likely the reaction woud be to freeze.”
I froze. I didn’t know what else to do.
The bad followed me. It followed me home. It followed me everywhere.
And I learned my lesson.
The next time, I chose flight.
I ran away. And I didn’t look back. I ran away from the bad. And it’s still there.
I finally learned the rest of the lessons.
This time- I fought. I fought the bad away. And I fought to keep it away.
