Will Talking About My Trauma Help Me Recover?

To utter the words of the unspeakable is to break an unseen bond within which the agreements we’ve made throughout our lives are forged. Trauma is painful, bewildering, inexplicable, and devastating. Despite the evident difficulty of carrying trauma, many of us hold onto the comfortable weight of our life stories because it is all we have known how to do in order to survive. Trauma recovery offers us more than surviving. Trauma recovery offers us the chance to walk through the darkness of our victimhood and dance into the light of a thriving life.

In order to get there, in order to undergo the transformational change required for recovery, we have to speak up. We have to take the brave first step to say, “This is me. This is what I’ve lived through. This is what it has done.” Sharing our stories is the very first step in our trauma recovery, but it is not the only step, nor is it the last. Releasing the words desperately needing to be said kickstarts a very cellular, visceral, spiritual process which will require the commitment to change in our mind, body, and soul. Trauma lives in more than our memories of the past. Trauma lives in our cellular being, the imprints of our brain functions, and the etchings of our souls. To recover from trauma we have to do much more than talk about our trauma, though talking is a critically important part of our recovery. Since trauma lives in our cellular being and takes up our emotional energy, we have to feel through our trauma as much as we have to talk through our trauma. As Judy Crane notes in The Trauma Heart, “Trauma healing cannot happen by ‘talking through it.’ Trauma healing happens by ‘feeling’ through it,” which she explains means completing the fight, flight, or freeze process which was abruptly halted by each traumatic incident of our lives.
