To say the Netflix comedy special "Nanette" affected me would be an understatement. Wow. Wow. Wow. Please watch it if you haven't. If you're a friend and local and need a Netflix account, come over. This is worth seeing again. And again.
Trauma is insidious. The way it holds us. The story it paints. I am incredibly privileged to have had resources that have allowed me to work my focus through the decades of trauma. That have allowed me the space and safety to face and then move through the varied layers. Shifting focus over time from victim to survivor.
What an incredible release it is to witness Hannah Gadsby's public shift. Gratitude. Pure gratitude. Thank you, Hannah.
