When we’ve survived an extremely traumatic event, it can be painful to revisit the memory.
Many of us would prefer not to talk about it. Many of us stuff it down and move on…often unaware that we are living life in half measure.
You don’t have to limp through life. You’re life doesn’t have to get smaller over time. It can become more expansive, more vivid and more alive every year.
Many trauma survivors I’ve known described the strength they found as they faced their trauma and told their story.
They said they felt unburdened, less numbness & anger….they saw their fear lessen and found greater freedom in their lives.
It takes courage to tell your story, and witnessing your own courage shows you that you’re not only strong, but also whole.
