If you continue to suffer after trauma, know there is help. There are treatment options.
Healing occurs as we express ourselves genuinely. In expressing how it was and is, we make ourselves the witness — one who sees rather than one who has merely been tossed about by passing events. In reaching out to grasp a troublesome past, we cease to be at its mercy, and the more we reach to make ourselves a witness to the past, the less we are its victim.
Words seemed to make it visible. But, speaking, even when it embarrassed me, also slowly freed me for the shame I felt. The more I struggled to speak, the less power the rape, and its aftermath, seemed to have over me.
Your trauma is not who you are. It is something that was done to you or happened to you.
