Trauma can impact every part of us. It can affect our relationships, our employment, what we enjoy in life, or even what we are scared of.  Trauma has the ability to change everything if we let it and control every aspect of our lives. Traumatic experiences have the ability to push us towards risky behavior or even isolation. Because of its ability to be so powerful, it is important to learn to process and work through past trauma. If left unchecked, it has the ability to stay with a person for their entire life. The consequences of the trauma may not always be present, but there is always the possibility of instability popping up. Here are some tips to help you as you work through your trauma. 

Be Realistic

Trauma takes time to work through. You will not simply wake up one day and be magically cured. It takes a great deal of effort to work through your past and understand your feelings. Once we understand our emotions and learn to acknowledge them, we can learn how to not let them affect our lives anymore. Once we can learn to not be affected, our trauma will not have the ability to destabilize us anymore. 

Surround Yourself with Support

Working through our trauma can be very frightening. It may feel as if we are reliving the moments again, feeling the emotions and the hurt. Working with a mental health professional is key so you know where to focus. Even when working through past traumatic events gets tough, it still has lifelong positive benefits. Surrounding yourself with loved ones can help as you journey through difficult topics. Your support system is there to remind you how great you are doing, how far you have come, and how proud they are of you. 


Trauma has the ability to impact every area of our lives. It can completely control us if we let it. By working with a mental health professional we can learn how to dig deep and find out where our trauma is coming from and how to best work through it. To move forward with life, we need to be able to move past our trauma. We need to be able to be unaffected and not destabilized by it.
