Overcome the Pain of Past Experiences
“I just want a life worth living.”
We all live through difficult experiences. But, sometimes those experiences are terrifying and can cause a lifetime of pain. This is trauma.
Untreated, trauma can impact every aspect of your life:
What is trauma?
Trauma is what can happen when we experience scary or life-threatening events. Yet, it’s important to remember that what is scary to one person is not to someone else. Sometimes we get through these times quite well. At other times, we can struggle for years with the impact of trauma-related conditions like Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
In fact, underlying common conditions like depression, anxiety, ADHD, and stress are often unresolved trauma. We tend to bury these painful memories. And when we do, the wear and tear on our body and mind become clear over time. After a while, we can’t hold it any longer.
Untreated trauma can impact us in many ways. It may alter how we relate to others, the world, and ourselves. Or, it can devastate our lives, bodies, and spirits. One of my trauma therapy clients put it best when he said “there is nothing in my life that isn’t impacted by my trauma.“
What causes trauma?
- Abuse – physical, emotional, sexual
- Natural disasters
- Car accidents
- Domestic violence
