The previous versions of us are no more

Everything has tumbled in at once: war, losses, destruction, total uncertainty about the future. The habitual perception of oneself and the world has been destroyed, and the new one can’t manage to form because we never manage a breather among pain, suffering, and fear. We have no time to become aware of our changes but instead feel a lot of anger – at ourselves and others. How do we survive that?

Family psychotherapist

“How to Survive War?” therapy group will be useful if

your previous idea about the world is destroyed, you feel confused and helpless in this new cruel reality:

You are overwhelmed by the feeling of guilt for leaving Ukraine, your home, friends, family and everything you have loved so much.

You blame yourself for staying to live and work in a country at war submitting yourself and your close ones to danger.

You are irritated by both those who left and those who stayed; you compare their choices with your own and it seems to you that “you have done everything wrong”.

You are so tired of war that you stopped seeing the point in both present and future. It seems to you that nothing good will ever happen again.

You aspire for self-isolation: you don’t want to communicate with anyone, and everybody annoys you, even the closest ones.

You cannot understand your feelings anymore, except one: total anxiety. Plus grief for the killed and injured, grief for the past life lost forever.
