Trauma feels like being shackled, breaking the chains off but still being shackled.
Trauma is not what happens to you, its what happens inside you as a result of what happens to you. We can heal from trauma, but the scars makes us who we are.
Unhealed trauma impacts every aspect of our lives.
It shapes the way we live, the way we love, and the way we make sense of the world, it is the root of our deepest wounds......from addiction, to anger to troubles self loiving and loving others all the way to emotional, spiritual and physical health.
We live in a world where compassion, empathy and understanding are stronger forces than competition, disconnection and over consumption.
We live in a world where pure love has no conditions or boundaries. Love does not restrain itself or hold back. Love gives all the time and dosent ask for anything in return, love is a continuous flow without any limits and this is why it is important to BE KIND to one another for everyone is fighting a battle that we know nothing about.
The Effects of Trauma Do Not Have to Last a Lifetime
Most people will experience a trauma at some point in their lives, and as a result, some will experience debilitating symptoms that interfere with daily life. The good news is that psychological interventions are effective in preventing many long-term effects and acknowleged trauma is a trauma that can be healed.
We will have trigger moments as this cannot eradicated, triggers can happen when you least expect them, when you think all the emotional wounds are healed, something can happen that reminds you there is still a scar. Therefore avoiding your triggers is not healing.
Healing happens when you are triggered and you are able to move through the pain, the pattern and the story to a diffrent ending / outcome.
Extreme Independence is a trauma response, the inability to receive support from others is a trauma response. The I dont need anyone, I do things myself is a conditioining survival tactic to protect yourself from betrayal, abandonment, etc.
Our brains are wired for connection but trauma rewires for protection.
To conclude, the people who trigger us to feel negative emotion are messengers, they are messengers for the unhealed parts of our being but you are worthy of everything your heart desires including worthy of having the right support to assist you along the way.
You are worthy. Worthy simply because you exist
