I see people who have similar attitudes to the one I had throughout my 20’s and 30’s. I believed I was so strong. I wonder if these people who sound so like myself before, are actually traveling the same path I was…
Suppressing it all, because it was so terrible and painful.
Until I could not suppress it any longer. And my brain and body began to break down.
‘That’ was when I began to heal.
What may look like someone is being ‘so strong, a ‘warrior survivor’, and the ‘poster child’ for healing……….. may in fact not be doing what they need to do to heal, at all.
I hope in sharing this, it encourages people to reflect as to whether they are suppressing, or healing?
In figuring out that the trauma has been suppressed, people may seek help quicker.
You do not heal any other way, than confronting it all. processing it all and grieving it all.
If this path is not taken, the trauma will continue to affect the persons life in many ways.
