When bad things happen to us or around us, we can take a while before we get past that overwhelming pain and feel safe again.
What are your personal strategies to speed your recovery in case of traumatic experience in life? Nobody can be really prepared for such situations, but simply knowing that healing from trauma is possible, as well as moving on in life, can make a huge difference.
Traumatic are those extremely stressful events that destroy your sense of security and make you feel helpless in the world that is frightening to you. Those situations don’t necessarily involve physical harm. Nobody can identify one negative event equally traumatic for all because we are all living it and processing it in a different way emotionally and cognitively.
