Different surveys show that from 37% to 60% of people report some kind of abuse or trauma in their childhood. However, having such trauma doesn’t mean that you had careless or evil parents. Maybe, they were too careful.
Once you have identified your trauma and started the road to its acceptance, you can begin to heal your childhood wounds. However, there is no easy way, as there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
To make your way easier, keep in mind these 4 things:
- Distance yourself from toxic people. Don’t let them slow down the process.
- Find self-regulation and stress-reduction techniques that won’t let the stress force you back into the coping mechanisms and the negative behaviors we develop as wounded children
- Seek out support – a psychotherapist can help you with recognizing your trauma and how to cope with it.
- Get more sleep – sound mind needs a sound body.
It’s just the beginning, it’s not the end of a process. Stay tuned to find out more or schedule an appointment with Rostyslav Shemechko.
