Trauma will Permanently Change Us

Finding new strength and joy when healing from trauma can be a good thing, and Catherine Woodwiss lays it out well in this passage.

 

Trauma permanently changes us.


This is the big, scary truth about trauma:
there is no such thing as “getting over it”
The five stages of grief model marks
universal stages in learning to accept loss,
but the reality is in fact much bigger: a major
life disruption leaves a new normal in its
wake.  There is no “back to the old me.”  You are
different now, full stop.

 

This not a wholly negative thing.  Healing
from trauma, can also mean finding new
strength and joy. The goal of healing is not a
papering-over of changes in an effort to
preserve or present things as normal.  It is to
acknowledge and wear your new life -
wart, wisdom, and all – with courage”
