Healing. It’s not linear, rarely logical and definitely has its own timeline. My personal philosophy about healing trauma is that we are – each of us – far more capable of self-healing (even from horrific abuse, neglect and acute traumas) than we’ve been led to believe.
There’s a pervasive belief in modern society that if you are “trauma” (this word has been stigmatized, dramatized and often made to be something other than it is) you must need the help of someone qualified to address such scary stuff.
I totally disagree.
While I firmly believe we need each other, and we all need help sometimes, I think we’ve swung the pendulum way too far in the direction of putting doctors and “professionals” on pedestals and believing they know more about us than we do; or, that they know what’s best for us, better than we do.
We’ve lost touch with our internal compass, our innate wisdom, our instincts for self-retrieval, self-healing, self-empowerment.
If my story can offer a different viewpoint, a different path up the same mountain, or help you feel less alone, more empowered…then – AMAZING.
I’m not sharing this for myself. I’m sharing this story because I think our world needs more stories of self-healing, and fewer stories about depression, anxiety and suicide statistics, or how ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences) decrease lifespan and increase the likelihood of illness and disease.
Until we “normalize” trauma (and understand that it’s the human condition we’re talking about, not just a small segment of the population to be sequestered and treated differently), we will continue to create traumatic experiences through our parenting, friendships, partnerships and community.
Please share your thoughts below, and if you’re so called – please share some of your trauma healing story (or your trauma story). If you have a YouTube channel or blog where you tell these kinds of stories, please link to them!
