Hurt people, hurt people. It may sound corny, but it is true. If you have been hurt by others, chances are you will hurt other people. It may not be intentional, but it could happen nevertheless. That is one of the reasons it’s a good idea to always think about your healing.

If you’ve had a less than perfect childhood that led to some challenges in your adult life, that may or may not have been the result of some kind of trauma. If that is the case, you are not to blame for childhood trauma, but you are responsible for healing. That is because you may unknowingly subject others to your issues and hurt them without the intention of doing so.

Sometimes when we are aware of traumas that we’ve experienced, we can try to spare those around us. However, there are times when we are not aware of it or how deep the trauma goes. In cases like that, we could do others harm without realizing it.

So, either way, trauma is not your fault. However, it is still your responsibility to heal and not subject others to it. Trauma is very complicated and is grouped into three different categories.

🔸Acute trauma is usually the result of a single instance.
🔸Chronic trauma is prolonged and repetitive and usually involves some type of abuse, domestic, or other types.
🔸Complex trauma is exposure to multiple and various events that include trauma which is usually invasive and interpersonal.

Below are some things that could be considered forms of trauma:

🔸Bullying
🔸Neighborhood or Community Violence
🔸Natural Disasters
🔸Early Childhood Trauma
🔸Medical Trauma
🔸Domestic Abuse
🔸Physical Abuse
🔸Refugee Trauma
🔸Sexual Abuse
🔸Grief
🔸Terrorism
🔸Emotional Terrorism

If you think you’ve been subjected to childhood trauma, it would be a great time to consider getting professional help in healing from your experience. You owe it to yourself and those around you to work on becoming a person that has acknowledged their trauma and has taken steps to heal.

I would love to know your thoughts on therapy, and more about your journey in getting better in touch with who you are through therapy. Reach out, let’s chat on FBIG, and Twitter. Until then, Happy Healing.
