Life is meant to be lived in the present, not in the past, nor in the future.
Trauma refers to the condition whereby an individual experiences a one-time or a cluster of severe negative events. A traumatic event may include witnessing or experiencing a threatening event where they may be terrified or feel helpless.
If you’ve gone through a traumatic experience or suffered repeated trauma you may be struggling with upsetting emotions, frightening memories, or a sense of constant danger that you just can’t kick. The trauma may have also left you feeling numb, disconnected, and unable to trust other people.
