Trauma and Abuse
Will My Past Pain Always Haunt Me?
It’s normal for past feelings to creep up in unexpected ways. If the abuse hasn’t been dealt with directly, your past pain tends to manifest itself in the present. Therapy helps put your past trauma to rest and close that chapter, so that it no longer effects how you think and feel in the future.
Trauma and abuse are similar, but different.
BOTH HAVING LONG LASTING EFFECTS ON AN INDIVIDUAL.
Trauma is a fear response to a threatening or shocking event. The more prolonged your exposure is to a traumatic event, the more severe the effects are.
Abuse is a direct offense on an individual. It’s exploitative, damaging, and hurtful. Abuse often occurs from your family as a child or romantic partner as an adult. Types of abuse include: physical, sexual, emotional, psychological, and/or economic.
Trauma and abuse can be buried in your past where it belongs.
