Exhaustion, even physical, is mental exhaustion.
Btw, today my therapist said something quite cool: Even though you did something that was not legit, your pain, your emotions, what you went through was legit.
You did what you knew best. Now you know better, so now you are doing better. But then that is what you knew the best. And you did whatever you could.
Then what’s the point of blaming yourself for something that you did with lack of awareness years ago?
That was helpful. And exhausting as well maybe. But sort of loving our sessions 🙂
