Dealing With the Effects of Trauma

Dealing With the Effects of Trauma

Trauma affects us in many ways. If you have ever struggled to get out of bed in the morning, it may be related to long term sorrow stemming from a traumatic event. Anxiety and panic attacks make it difficult to feel “normal” which often leads to isolation. It’s no surprise that anger and self-loathing are prevalent in those who bottle up, rather than deal with, things they’ve experienced. Even self-harm feels good to some who want to dull emotional pain.

Dealing With the Effects of Trauma

There is hope for recovery!

Being an active part of your emotional healing is pivotal. After all, who knows you better than you? There is a clear correlation between our thoughts and our actions. Therefore, positive thinking brings positive action. 
By identifying our beliefs and ridding those that no longer, or have never, suited us in a genuine way, we begin to build an authentic, positive belief system. For example, if Susan is told that she is worthless and believes it to be true, why would she dare to dream of success? 
There may be evidence that she is not worthless, such as her empathetic heart, her ability to touch others through her volunteer work, her stable employment, etc. Once Susan realizes this belief is not genuine, she can replace that belief with a more positive one, such as “I am worthy.” 
Once you begin your journey of healing, the momentum to become the best version of yourself will pick up! The journey begins with one step, the decision to move forward. This step may just be the one that leads you to wholeness!
