Trauma is a widespread, harmful and costly public health problem. It occurs as a result of violence, abuse, neglect, loss, disaster, war and other emotionally harmful experiences. Trauma has no boundaries with regard to age, gender, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, geography or sexual orientation. It is an almost universal experience of people with mental and substance use disorders. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. While these feelings are normal, some people have difficulty moving on with their lives.
Recovering from trauma takes time. It’s so important to give yourself time to heal and to mourn the losses you’ve experienced related to your trauma. It’s never helpful to try to force the healing process. Do the best you can to try to be patient with the pace of your healing and recovery. Try to simply be consciously aware of your thoughts and feelings, and allow yourself to feel whatever comes up for you without judgment or guilt or shame. Join our upcoming free Masterclass and learn about emotional triggers and how to stop them from affecting your mental health and relationships negatively.
