Experts suggest ways to correct habits that keep us from resting well

I first want to say that I agree with some posts about the ACE being too narrow in scope. I took it and got a 5 after I really carefully considered all the questions, but in the past I took it and got a 3 or 4 and that didn't seem to jive with how I feel all the time.
At this stage in my life, it is really difficult for me to have self respect, to stand up for myself, to chase what I want instead of what is easy, etc. The last article's talk of one patient who said he just could not feel normal with his girlfriend's happy family really applies to me best I feel. And also, I feel that the abuse I felt as a child was more from omission that comission.
Early emotional trauma changes who we are, but we can do something about it.
And if so, is it an invitation for frustration -- or mindful awareness?
