“My trauma wasn’t just living in my memory…it was living in my body, in my brain.”
When we are the victims of trauma, it never really leaves us. It leaves scars on our psyche and implants itself in our bodies (especially our nervous systems). Until that trauma is resolved, you live with the stress and the pressure in your very bones. It affects your ability to sleep, relate, function, and even relax. That’s because trauma doesn’t just change the way you think — it changes your brain and the way it operates.
