What is childhood trauma? It is an event or series of events experienced by a child that left a dark spot in their mind. Childhood traumas can include physical or mental abuse, suppressing behavior, etc. Childhood traumas are one of the scariest experiences of one’s life and can have lasting effects on their entire life. Even though having a childhood trauma is unavoidable since it’s not in one’s own hands. However, treating it is very crucial so that it does not affect their daily routine.
The most important step towards treating childhood trauma is acknowledging it. Many of the people suffering from it often tend to avoid thinking about what happened. Even you never face it, it will keep residing and growing inside you and never let you get over it. In your childhood, you were not in control; you just had to experience what others were doing since you were vulnerable. However, now things are different. You are in control, and you are the one making the environment for the vulnerable around you.
Therefore, facing your trauma and knowing that you are creating the environment for those who are now in the place you were in can make you more responsible for your actions and reactions toward particular things. Treating and conversing with yourself is one of the ways out of childhood traumas.
