what kind of signs are you giving

When you are on the road there are all kinds of signs. If you have PTSD, you may not be aware that you are showing signs to people in your life. There is no clarity about them at all. You may be fine one minute but a trigger sets you off. Someone says the wrong thing and you overreact to it. That rollercoaster ride of emotions is too hard to interpret. You need to do a hell of a lot more than expect them to understand you when you don't understand yourself. Imagine what it would be like if you were driving and there were no road signs at all. Everyone would have to guess and that would be very dangerous.

Leaving people in your life to guess is dangerous too. They will usually get it wrong. You need to make sure they can read the signs you are showing clearly. They don't need to know the details if you don't want to tell them. They just need to know that it isn't about how you feel about them but more about what you have going on within you.

Today the featured video is Neil Diamond, Signs
 

When you are getting help to heal, you start to understand where the mood swings are coming from and are able to control them better. Until then, don't let your silence make it worse for the people in your life. 

Remember, it is your life...get in and drive it!

Signs
Words and Music by Neil Diamond

Signs that burn like shooting stars
That pass across the nighttime skies,
They reach out in their mystic language
For us to read between the lines.
Some are born who would defy them,
Others still who would deny them, signs.
Signs like moments hung suspended,
Echoes just beneath the heart
Speak in voices half remembered
And half forgotten play their part.
Signs that come as we lay sleeping
Left behind for our keeping, signs.
Sail along, sail along the reefs and the coves inside your soul.
Sail along, sail along in search of a star that you can hold.
And we journey far to where that star may lead to (lead to).
Signs that whisper in the dreams of sailors
And of river queens of paupers and of men with means,
It all depends on how it reads.
Some are born who never need them,
Others still who never read them, signs.
Sail along, sail along the reefs and the coves inside your soul.
Sail along, sail along in search of a star that you can hold.
And we journey far to where that star may lead to (lead to).
Signs, signs.
Some are born who never need them,
Others still who never read them, signs
