A post to my page that is resonating with others.
For many of us that were abused in childhood onwards, we don’t have a ‘pre-trauma’ us.
We’ve endured trauma and the consequences of it, since we can remember.
This is very different to having a ‘good enough childhood’ and then experiencing trauma later on, or as an adult and has many different challenges.
This leaves a survivor with a sense of not knowing who they really are and we have to create that person as part of healing.
I am continually developing my sense of self, my virtues, my values, my self needs, my identity, my self worth and my self esteem.
It is a process, but I see healing complex trauma as transforming self into the person we can be and not the person the abusers treated us as.
For a long time, I was who everyone else wanted me to be and was lost within that.
Now, I am developing me, and I am aware this is an ongoing journey as it is for us all.
I am sharing this as I know for many, having a ‘no pre-trauma’ identity, is very hard and challenging and I understand this fully.
