so my therapist in residential gave me an assignment, to write my life story as a way of identifying how and when my behaviors started. it was very helpful.

I did a similar exercise in residential - it was 26 pages long! But it was helpful because it forced me to "re-write" my internalised story of my life, in which I was always responsible for anything that happened to me, to seeing such a clear pattern of repeated trauma occurring within the context of a highly invalidating and aloof family environment.
