Easter weekend can be a struggle for dissociative trauma survivors. Thoughts about that and some fun finding caterpillars included for the kids.

Remember to work with your system.
Your inside system will be able to remember much of what happened in the past — both the good and the bad. Be sure to check with them.
And help them, in whatever way they need help.
Many in your system were stuck in the darkness of Easter-timed trauma.
Help those ones in your system find a better time, a better place, a happier day.
A transformation can happen — leave no one in your system stuck in their sadness, pain, or fear.

Being Kind to Your Internal System
I wish you the best in your healing journey.

I usually buy my smalls a fun Easter basket with candy favorites and spend the day watching non-stressful movies/TV. Easter is also a nice time to do coloring books and games. I am not Christian but enjoy the soft,fluffy stuffed animals and candy and focus on those things.
Sending love and healing to all those who need it.

Hi M Fry –
Welcome to Discussing Dissociation!
I’m so glad to hear that you do fun things with your littles over Easter. It’s important to let those little ones experience some of the good stuff. They’ve already seen far too much of the not-so-good stuff.
Love and healing thoughts are very welcomed here. Thank you for that, and sending the same kindness back your way.
