Living With Trauma
Trauma is the body’s response to an overwhelming situation. And it’s no secret, we’re living through deeply traumatic times.
From the planetary and societal violence of modernity, to the daily struggles of trying to find peace and happiness in often detached and draining lifestyles, it can feel nearly impossible to connect with joy, let alone your most heart-filling inspirations and purpose in life.
Beyond the ongoing pain of this era, you have undoubtedly experienced personal trauma, whether Big “T” Traumas like abuse or major accidents, or little “t” traumas such as loss, bullying, illness, or being consistently misunderstood and misattuned to. As a result, you may experience:
- rage, and
- intolerable grief.
You might also find yourself:
- easily overwhelmed by intense emotions, or
- feeling increasingly numb and withdrawn.
At times in your life, you may have experienced or glimpsed the preciousness and meaningfulness of life. You probably want to feel that way again; yet living with unresolved trauma makes those feelings unreachable.
