No matter how hard we try, it is practically impossible to avoid traumatic events to happen in our lives. Some people have firm nerves, and they have learned the art of dealing with their emotions and trauma healthily. However, it is certainly not the case with most people. Therefore, it is important that we learn how we need to deal with any emotional trauma in a way that doesn’t keep ruining our lives.
If you are going through a hard time in your life because of emotional trauma, then know that you are not alone in this. While there is not much that I can do to make it easy for you, I can still share my experience of what helped me in dealing with my trauma.
Here you go:
Learning to Accept Your Feelings is Important
If you have been through any traumatic experience and you are not able to recover from it, then it is not a big deal. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. The way you should feel about your own experience is ultimately your choice. Accept your feelings as they are so that you begin to heal. If anyone tells you that you are overreacting about it, shut them out and deal with your emotions in your own, but healthy way.
Understand this; it is NOT Your Fault
Sadly, whenever something happens to anyone, this society starts telling them how they could have stopped it from happening if they have been careful enough. It is nothing but a starter pack of victim-blaming. First of all, cut all such people from your life and, then, don’t ever forget that it was never your fault. No one gets to say anything about it otherwise.
Talk About it With the Right people
Talking about the traumatic experiences of your life can be extremely painful. Talking about it can suddenly bring all the haunting memories of the event back. However, at the same time, you need to talk about it as it is the first step towards healing from the trauma. Therefore, you have to find the right people to talk about how your experience changed you.
If you have people in your life to talk about your traumas, then you are blessed. But, even then, if you want to talk about it anonymously, then become John Doe and use the right platform to say it all out.
