Though we live in the most technologically advanced society ever, we’ve never been more worried, drugged up, or alone. Based on the stories we were given about our trauma and the ones we tell ourselves, everyone of us is carrying the weight of our trauma with us at all times. These stories act as a mental “backpack full of bricks” that prevent us from being happy and healthy.
