    Self-Care after Trauma: Learning Sexual Boundaries while Feeling Frustrated and Exhausted (week 3 of my study)

    Self-Care after Trauma: Learning Sexual Boundaries while Feeling Frustrated and Exhausted (week 3 of my study)

    In this episode, I dive into the raw data from Week 3 of my study, "Self-Care after Trauma: A heuristic inquiry using Art Therapy, Journaling, and Dream reflection." The raw data consists of all of my art pieces, journal entries, and documented dreams that was expressed for the duration of the 5 week study. Within Week 3, I was still processing the sensations of anger in not feeling "seen." Then I was feeling frustrated with the boundaries I needed in regards to sex, and I was feeling extremely exhausted.
    I was feeling the full weight of my trauma in a way I had never experienced before. My study was having me constantly confront myself and my relationship with sex. I discuss how I was originally agitated with the process of shifting my mindset from being used to sexual abuse to then starting to get used to a healthy sex and sexuality lifestyle. I was also confronting my maladaptive coping mechanism of avoiding. I realized it would be a crucial decision to either choose to push through or slip back into avoidance.

    Married and Divorced before 30

    Married and Divorced before 30

    On this episode, I share some of my experience on how I fell for the societal pressures of getting married instead of reflecting on whether or not it was an aligned decision. How society views marriage as a big part of this check-list of things people "need" to achieve in order to be successful or feel fulfilled had an affect on me. I fell for the pressure, which had me continuously choose to stay with a hurtful person. 
    You will never win if you are trying to please society. Instead, do what is right for you! 
    I also felt the societal judgment of getting divorced. I had the saying, "people these days don't fight for relationships," stuck on loop in my head. It warped my mindset into believing that I had to stay because if I worked hard enough then the relationship would become healthy and work out. I learned that if the marriage is a reflection of unalignment then it will not matter how hard you work for the relationship, it will always be a disaster. I am here to say, YOU ARE ALLOWED TO LEAVE. I wish someone would have told me years ago that you're allowed to leave a relationship if it's not healthy and behaviors are not changing. 
    I just want people to know that divorce is nothing to be ashamed of. Be proud that you DID NOT stay with a human who wasn't right for you. 
    p.s. When I talk about how if you are not happy then leave, I would like to clarify that you are responsible for your own happiness, but if the relationship is making you miserable and is unhealthy, stop choosing misery and leave.

    Reintegrating Back into Society as My Full Authentic Self!

    Reintegrating Back into Society as My Full Authentic Self!

    Today is the day I finally reveal what I have been alluding to for months. I've mentioned periodically that I have major updates about my life, but was not in a position to be able to share them quite yet. Well... here we are! Truthfully, I still don't feel 100% ready. It feels way more comfortable to continue to be a hermit and not speak on my truth, but change does not happen when we stay silent. 
    What has been happening for me during 2021?
    My legal name is now Kelsey Morgan. I left an abusive marriage. I have fully accepted my queerness.  
    I am putting my whole self, my truly authentic self, out there, and it's scary as f**k! I have been authentic on all things Creating Light with Kelsey, but it hasn't been until now where I have felt safe enough to share these parts of myself. So here I am! Entering yet another layer of vulnerability. I feel it is a part of my mission to share my life, my healing, because it is all a part of the ripple effect. And that is what I came here to do, to create light! Thank you for being here to witness the journey, I appreciate all of you!!

    How No Longer Wearing Bras Has Helped With My Sexuality Healing And Self-Confidence

    How No Longer Wearing Bras Has Helped With My Sexuality Healing And Self-Confidence

    Today, I share how I came to the decision of no longer wearing a bra. Which then unintentionally lead to becoming another tool that has helped the process of healing my sexuality. As a survivor of sexual trauma, there are many layers to contribute to rediscovering the feelings of being whole, confident, secure, and sensual in the aftermath of trauma, or possibly even learning how to feel those things for the very first time. Embarking on this journey of no longer wearing bras gifted me with reconnecting to my body and showing it love.
    Key takeaways:
    I had let the media's portrayal of boobs dictate my self-worth. I was wearing bras to make OTHER people feel comfortable and to prevent possible sexual feelings of OTHER people which was perpetuating rape culture.  Let's start making it normal to see a woman's body and NOT have it immediately go to sex. Not wearing a bra surfaced a lot of fears and critical thoughts, which gave me the opportunity to work through that and begin to see my body as beautiful.

    Learning To Walk Through Life Not Giving A F**k

    Learning To Walk Through Life Not Giving A F**k

    In today's episode, I talk about how recently I have been letting the universe know that I am open to shed all the layers related to the fear of caring what other people think, which in turn allows me to walk through life not giving a f**k. Well, ask and you shall receive, AND the universe got jokes!! It seems that opportunities have just been flowing in where I have the choice to give a f**k or to not give a f**k. Tune in as I share a funny story while being gifted with a lesson.
    Key Takeaways:
    No one cares as much as you think they do, so do what makes you happy! Each time I feel worried about another person's opinion of me, it is an opportunity to let that anxiety go. Having self-awareness allowed me to feel the anxiety, problem solve, and then let it go. I have been learning that the less f***s I give, the more peace I have!
