You’ve probably heard what they say about idle hands and the Devil. Well, it’s certainly true for our friend Lily. She likes to stay busy, for sure. Lily likes music and is teaching herself to play the guitar. She’s also working on her culinary skills in the kitchen, although you won’t catch her whipping up anything that includes Brussel sprouts! Lily keeps her circle of friends small and does her best to stay away from any unnecessary drama. But the truth is, drama seems to follow Lily around a little more than she’d like to admit. When she runs out of things to keep her busy and her mind occupied, all of the negative thoughts, memories, fears, and anxieties from her previous trauma come around and knock her off the path she wants to be on. She can be a little volatile emotionally when these times come, and she can be aggressive and oppositional without a whole lot of provocation. Lily understands that she has some ownership in these emotional moments, but she needs a forever family that also understands that she needs their help to ride these waves and come out on the other side with a better outlook and improved skills to minimize the episodes. She’s working hard in therapy to get these skills, and she needs you to be there behind her to reinforce the lessons she’s learning and support her. She’s worth the effort, and she’s ready to find her place to settle in and feel wanted and secure.
