Your trauma starts interfering with your everyday functioning; that’s when you need to confront these issues. You may notice that you’re lashing out at people in interpersonal relationships and you don’t know why. As you dig deeper, you discover that the wounds from childhood are still affecting you, and you’re rehashing your trauma as an adult.
Your childhood trauma wounds won’t heal unless you address them. You may feel shame or guilt because of what happened to you. These are natural feelings to have, but they won’t help you get past the events. For you to start healing from the wounds of childhood, you need to face your past. You don’t have to do this alone. One of the best ways to start addressing your trauma from childhood is by going to therapy. When you work with a therapist, whether that’s online or in your local area, you have a person who cares about what you’ve experienced. They want you to heal.
