She’s Talking About What Trauma Responses From Hyper-Independence Might Look Like

  • You are a workaholic or an overachiever.
  • You have a fear of being perceived as “needy,” so you don’t ask for or accept help.
  • You have trouble with delegating tasks.
  • You’re known for being dependable.
  • You’re accustomed to doing everything for/by yourself.
  • You often say that you’re fine when you’re really not.

If you believe you are hyper-independent, what you can do is try to get to the root of your trauma and take small steps toward allowing others to offer you support.

Unlearning your trauma response is a journey, and at times, uncomfortable feelings may arise. However, it’s important to work through them so you can reach a healthy balance of self-reliance and knowing that it’s okay to ask for help when you need it.
