I see people who have endured trauma and abuse, talking about ruminating, and I want to clear up the belief that #PTSD is ruminating.
It isn’t. At all.
When people imply people with PTSD are ruminating – they are implying the thoughts , intrusive memories, and emotions – are a choice.
PTSD is not a choice.
And most people with PTSD would tell you they would prefer to NEVER think about the trauma/abuse. …
In fact, many of us spent a lot of time and effort trying to suppress the trauma – so we didn’t have to think about it – only to make our situation worse long term. Because suppressing trauma – never leads to healing.
