Trauma can be a result of something that happens in our life that leaves us physically and emotionally traumatised that under normal circumstances wouldn’t be seen as a problem.
As a consequence of trauma, we may struggle with our emotions that can be upsetting, memories that are frightening or a sense of being in danger, perhaps through an assault. As a result we may feel numb, be unable to trust others because of our experiences, or just feel disconnected with the world.
There are other ways we can experience trauma and often do. Living with stress in a dysfunctional family is another form of trauma. That is the most common form. It is important to learn more about what it all means, how we can deal with trauma and how working through trauma can eventually bring peace back into our lives.
Trauma doesn’t just affect the person dealing with the trauma, but will also affect that person’s family. Unfortunately, when trauma becomes the focus, it will trigger other thoughts on what we deal with too.
