You are not defined by the things that happened to you and you can heal from them.
The reason this is so hard to believe is because difficult experiences change the way we think, feel, and act. We start to believe that others can’t be trusted, that there’s something wrong with us, and that we’re not good enough. We feel out of control of our emotions and at the same time detached from them. We feel on edge, hypervigilant, and have a feeling that something is going to go wrong – even when there is no proof. Decision making is difficult. Spending time with others is hard. Keeping up a front is exhausting.
Sometimes we’re haunted by our memories, our sleep suffers, and it feels like nothing will ever help us. Like we’re beyond fixing.
This is trauma.
It can be hard to know where to start and to imagine feeling better. Maybe you’ve reached out for help and it didn’t work – maybe it even made things worse.
