It can be so painful to feel all of the hurt that has happened in your childhood.
Thoughts of mistrust and fears of abandonment creep into your mind day after day, always waiting for the other shoe to drop.
These are all common responses as a result of childhood trauma which include but are not limited to; emotional/physical neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse and verbal abuse.
If the effects of childhood trauma are suppressed, left untreated, or worse - numbed out with substances and toxic relationships, it can have a devastating impact on your self-esteem, relationships with loved ones, and physical health.
It’s important for you to know, what you are experiencing is a normal reaction to abnormal circumstances.
The truth though is that if you take the right action, then you can find the path to healing that lets you enjoy life each day.
Research has shown that trauma impacts the areas of the brain that are activated in stressful situations;(the amygdala), cortisol levels, and can damage our memory (hippocampus).
