Trauma is a trendy topic, but why are we all so obsessed with healing our trauma, and do we truly need to?
I am terrified of using my trauma as an excuse for my current behaviour. How acknowledgment of insecurities equates to making excuses in my head, I don't know!
Trauma can feel very debilitating, removing agency and control from us. So when the waiting on feeling better is out of our hands too, we might just lose it a little.
"I was acting as if I had been traumatised, but I hadn't. My parents were loving." So what happened here?
I finally got to read Moshe Feldenkrais, who is the father of body-awareness exercises. Do you know how they influence our thoughts and awareness and subsequently, heal trauma?
Trauma recovery is kind of my thing. So when a recent trauma threw me, I thought bouncing back would be no biggie.
In the mind-body school of trauma, movement is a staple to recovery. Often we associate bodily sensations with danger, so we disassociate. But gentle movement therapy can help!
