let's talk trauma
Some thoughts around trauma for your Saturday morning ☕️:
Trauma is such a strange beast- everyone’s experience of trauma is unique and each person copes with trauma differently. Two people could go through the same event and have completely different experiences and reactions to the what happened.
The new definition of trauma is when your internal resources (your mental health, coping skills,exercise, belief system, mindfulness, etc) and external resources (stable environment, financial factors, supportive people in your life, a therapist, etc) are inadequate to cope with a situation.
Some people’s threshold for trauma could be much lower than others due to these internal or external factors.
You never know what others are going through and it’s ok to have a different experience of trauma than others! 🌊 You are coping the way you need to, no judgements necessary!
