Trauma can have an incredible impact on people. It can influence and overwhelm every aspect of our lives if we do not work through it. If you have experienced abuse or mental health struggles, know you are not alone. Working with a mental health professional will help you understand what you are feeling and gain the skills you need to work through your trauma. As you work with a professional, it may help you to keep the following points in mind. 


Talk About It


Talk about your trauma; this is probably going to be hard and uncomfortable. However, when we talk about our trauma in a therapeutic setting, a professional will listen and support us. You are capable of working through your trauma. 


Find Support


Everyone’s support system will look slightly different. For that reason, try not to compare your recovery to someone else’s. We are all on our own journeys to happiness. Your support system is fundamental as you work through your trauma and may include your family or friends. Having someone you can talk to about what you are going through without fear of judgment can be great for your mental health and overall well-being. We all need to feel a sense of belonging, especially when we are facing complex journeys. 


Journal Your Feelings


Journals can be a helpful addition to your therapy. Write down those feelings and words that are difficult to verbalize out loud. You can keep track of your triggers, moods, and relationships. Journaling can be a way to begin to notice patterns. You can then use this information when talking with your therapist. The more you can explain to them, the better they can help and support you on your journey.
