Life can be complicated. Our experiences, for better or worse, can change us. Some of these events are obvious. Overt traumas, such as an accident, illness, sudden death of a loved one, combat, rape, physical attack, sexual or physical abuse as a child, or domestic violence, can create deep wounds.
Other events are harder to identify. Whether it’s neglect, verbal abuse, frequent criticism, ongoing lack of empathy from a loved one, being made to feel fearful, chronic anxiety, feeling like we don’t matter during childhood, or feeling you are unlovable or unwanted, these events can deeply impact our mental health and well-being.
Life Beyond Your Trauma
In the aftermath of trauma, we can find ourselves being triggered into feeling or acting in ways that can sometimes feel beyond control. Our culture dictates a policy of picking ourselves up and moving on. For some people, they can move forward. For others, because of the way their brain responds to such events by changing neurological chemistry, moving forward requires help.
When left unmanaged, unresolved trauma can leave you feeling like you are back there again feeling the feelings, hearing the sounds, and/or smelling the smells that were present at the time of the original incident(s).
Lingering trauma can also leave you feeling:
Characteristics of PTSD
- Afraid, anxious, or panicked
- Angry or rageful
- Out of control
Additionally, by avoiding these feelings, whether consciously or subconsciously, the impact of trauma can seep into our homes, relationships, work, or school. However, you do not have to face these feelings alone – we’re here to help.
