I am so immersed in trauma at the moment, I’m amazed I’m functioning.
My friend and I have started a YouTube channel that focuses on moving beyond childhood trauma. Each month, we will post a short discussion on a topic that relates to childhood trauma and it’s many impacts.
I’m also preparing my workshop materials for Wednesday’s course, Moving Beyond Childhood Trauma.
So, what am I learning?
I’m learning that when you are delving into and immersing yourself in this issue, you really need to practice self-care.
I am learning that triggers will come fast.
I am learning that trauma makes you very vulnerable and makes you want to be so small that no one sees you.
I am learning that trauma’s voice is shame, and it speaks when it wants to.
I am learning that I am not the little abused child anymore. I’m a grown woman who possesses a fierce spirit and a compassionate soul. I am learning that the impact of trauma is ultimately a choice: we choose to stay in it or to get out of it.
We are in control of our lives. We choose what we do, where we go, who we hang with, and whether we get treatment or drown.
