“Trauma creates change you DON’T choose. Healing is about creating change you DO choose.”
– Michelle Rosenthal
Some experiences are recycling in your head.
Up until now, you have been through a lot from your childhood. But you never realized that the past had the power to haunt your present.
The memories of those traumatic experiences seize your thoughts and emotions. They feel uncontrollable and intolerable at times, almost as if they are an abusive lover.
The defenses you developed then served a purpose in some ways and have protected you in others, but they now leave you victimized, frozen, numb, and afraid.
You desperately desire to feel safe – in your body, thoughts, and the world. But, unfortunately, all you have known is how to survive because safety has only been an idea, not a reality.
Trauma is hard to forget and get over.
Trauma can feel like a never-ending cycle that leaves you feeling depleted, broken, and overwhelmed.
However, reliving what you experienced does not have to be this way.
Untreated trauma is unlikely to disappear and impact your entire life.
Trauma can contribute to episodes of depression and anxiety – and slowly affect your interpersonal relationships and ability to live a healthy high functioning lifestyle.
“Trauma is a fact of life. However, it does not have to be a life sentence.”
– Peter Levine
