Trauma has the ability to affect every single aspect of an individual’s life. When a person experiences something traumatic, it can have a lasting effect if not worked through. If you are experiencing trauma in your life, know that you are not alone. Working with a mental health professional is often encouraged to learn more about the effects of your trauma and the best skills for you to work through it. If your relationships are being affected by your trauma, it is essential to talk about that with your mental health provider. As you begin your journey towards healing, here are a few tips to keep in mind to help your relationships withstand the effects of trauma. 


Acknowledge Your Trust Issues


Every relationship is different and will be affected by your mental health issues differently. Take time to analyze your feelings and emotions in every relationship because your trauma can affect these relationships. If you are struggling with trust issues, be open about your level of trust and communicate your needs. 


Develop Your Self-Esteem


Having a healthy level of self-esteem can have a positive impact on your overall mental health and well-being. However, if you have experienced trauma, this can be challenging. Working with a therapist can help you learn the skills needed to improve your self-esteem while you strive to understand and accept your trauma. 


Lean on Your Support Circle


Trauma brings up many painful emotions, and working through them can be challenging. For some, this can take a significant amount of time to understand and accept. While trauma may have affected your relationships, you might have a few people who are close to you. If you find yourself having a hard time working through your trauma, work on accepting support from those you trust the most. Receiving support will help you work through your recovery positively.
