Everyone deals with trauma in different ways because everyone’s trauma is specific to their individual circumstances. There are many reasons for trauma to occur that can stem from an illness, an accident, a relationship that involves mental or physical abuse, a natural disaster, death, or other awful scenarios that will not just go away with the blink of an eye. Trauma is an emotional response to an unfathomable situation that causes deep-rooted affliction that can last for years afterward. 

Someone who suffers from trauma may not know how to get the help they need and deny that there is a problem anyway. Using drugs or alcohol to cope may keep a person from getting the help they need to process the pain in a constructive way. Consuming these substances, especially addictively, can keep a person delusionally inept to think that their situation is normal. They believe they are not ready to deal with their trauma because they fear what they will go through. The truth is that if they allow themselves to work through the trauma, they will find a better way to live without the pain and suffering. 

Recognize Your Trauma

You may want to deny that your trauma is not that bad, but when you accept that your trauma is causing problems, you can free yourself of the misery it is causing you. The symptoms that you may be enduring can show you that your trauma is more significant than you once thought. Depression, mood swings, anxiety, distrust, and isolation are indicators that you are suffering from trauma, and you may need help to treat it.

Get Support for Your Trauma

If you are unsure how to address your trauma, you should find a therapist to help you get through it. There are many different types of therapies that are excellent for treating trauma, such as talk therapies, art therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Breath-work, and group therapy. The point of therapy is to help you process trauma so that you can move away from the pain and start your recovery. 

Although you may not think you are ready to take on your trauma, you are. You will not heal immediately from your trauma because it takes time. All you need to do is take baby steps in the healing process in order not to overwhelm yourself by trying to tackle your trauma all at once. You are taking a different approach without using drugs and alcohol or any destructive behaviors to fall back on. You were meant to get through your trauma with a new lease on life.
