Therapy is teaching me how I've tried to turn my reactions to trauma into "superpowers". Like the power of flexibility that comes from not having your own preferences. The power of never being rejected because you don't ask for anything. And on & on.

the power of compartmentalization 😭😭😭
I am afraid to want things, afraid of being rejected, and traditionally, I've taken whatever control I can by fetishizing my ability to make do with very little food, time, energy, and even emotional support. I filled up with the faux power of making myself small.
