Even When I Get it Right, It Hurts

Real-Talk About Trauma

Thoughts about everyday life with complex PTSD from a girl trying to figure shit out. Let’s get real about trauma healing: a series

Let’s have some real-talk about what it actually feels like when we survivors recognize and manage our emotional triggers, yeah?

I am getting better at recognizing my triggers, which means I am slowly teaching myself how to manage them.

Still, no matter what I do to cope, no matter how often I counter my negative thoughts, my process still takes time. It doesn’t happen suddenly once I realize what is happening, and dammit, this shit still just hurts.

Only time will dull the edges of this grief, but if I am honest, I don’t believe it will ever fully go away; childhood abuse and trauma marks the soul.

I just want you to know that you aren’t alone wondering what more you can do. You aren’t alone begging for this crazy ride to end. You also aren’t alone on your path to healing.

Keep going, I am right beside you.

  1. I hear you. I am on a similar journey unpacking a lot of shit from childhood and I am getting to know my coping mechanisms really close, while living with family. Its liberating in a way but the suppressed emotions are not fully integrated too. So I am in some kind of a limbo i guess.
