Kids internalised and externalised behaviours are usually a reflection of their internal nervous system/ stress response to having difficulties dealing with demands and expectations in their environment. It is up to us to support the child by looking beyond behaviour...

“I didn’t start setting boundaries until I was in my early 30s.

They were terrifying to me.

I was conditioned in a home where ‘putting others first’ was glorified.

It wasn’t until I became more aware that I saw underneath the self sacrifice + codependency was a lot of controlling behaviors.

Without clear boundaries, there is usually control + resentment.

There often demands.

Demands come from a wounded space. When our needs are unmet for years (or decades) we don’t know how to objectively state our limits.

We become demanding in an unconscious attempt to remain in control— to not get hurt.

Demands put another person on the defensive. They also active the nervous system, making another person feel unsafe.

When we feel unsafe we can’t authentically connect or communicate. This is why when people make demands on us we become so resistant. We can’t actually hear what the person is feeling or needing.

We just *feel* controlled.

Boundaries are for US.

They’re not attempts to control another persons behavior. That’s the tough part about boundaries— we have to take responsibility. If someone doesn’t honor our boundaries, we have to follow through on our limit.

Regardless of how uncomfortable this makes us feel.

When I first started placing boundaries with my family, there was push back. Tons of hurt feelings + misunderstandings. I couldn’t control the reactions.

All I could do was navigate how I responded to them + work to trust that setting boundaries would free me from so much of my resentment.

With practice, they did.” @the.holistic.psychologist

"After a traumatic experience, the emotional toll may be so heavy that people may avoid anything that might remind them of what happened. Some people’s efforts to block residual feelings of trauma may look like adapting avoidance behavior to avoid feelings of pain, also called trauma blocking."

No one can know the future with 100% certainty. And that can be scary.

So how can you reassure your partner, and yourself, when you don’t know what’s going to happen? Embrace ambiguity. Lean into it, turn towards it, and start sharing about it.

Using Dr. Pauline Boss’s Ambiguous Loss theory, adapted here by Certified Gottman Therapist Michael McNulty, explore what partners can do to embrace ambiguity together: https://bit.ly/31hcpGS

Healthy couples constantly make and accept bids to connect. When you turn towards those bids, you communicate to your partner that you see and value them.

Try to notice the ways in which you and your partner respond to such bids for attention, empathy, or connection in your interactions. You may find yourself too overwhelmed to respond with High Energy responses all the time: let them be your ultimate goal, not an expectation placed on either partner.

We are currently recruiting presenters for our Ending the Silence program. Ending the Silence is a 50-minute presentation on signs and symptoms of mental illness designed to change misconceptions and “end the silence” surrounding mental health. It gives participants information and first-hand accounts from two presenters, one lead presenter and one young adult presenter.

NAMI is seeking individuals over the age of 18 who are comfortable with public speaking and have a connection to mental illness (through yourself or a friend/family member). Given the novel coronavirus, presentations may occur either virtually or in-person.

Please contact Nina Richtman at [email protected] if you are interested in becoming a presenter or would like more information.
