A growing body of research shows connections between enduring and surviving early adverse relationships and being told, in adulthood that we are “psychotic”.
We will likely be told we have “lost touch with reality”, whatever that means, when the truth is it’s really not hard to understand: we are struggling to feel safe in the world.
We will likely be told we need be more resilient when we have likely already shown more resilience than anyone who says that to us.
Works great in b&w too.
