Humans are good at running away from lions. (Like, yes, a lion’s gonna catch us, but we’re good at trying.)
Danger equals adrenaline equals quick speedy fight or flight. Human bodies are good at this.
Some people grow up running away from lions every single day. Lions that sound like dad yelling again or the cool kids taunting you again or your relationships failing you again and again. Every day is scary and unsafe.
Traumatized people get really good at running away from lions.
Problem is, to a traumatized person, everything begins to look like a lion.
What good things have you been running away from?
