Many young people who have experienced trauma/abuse show their feelings of hurt and pain through self damaging ways. Showing it through destructive behaviour which can be perceived as “stupid”, “wrong” or “weird” in society. Things like self-harm, eating disorders, bullying, drug and alcohol abuse and prostitution. But for us these things have been our way of survival, hoping to either keep our secrets hidden and pushed down or wanting to draw attention in the need for the secret to be discovered. We cannot just “get over it”. We cannot just “forget”…. But we can heal. We just have to learn how.
The healing path is long and often hard, but in the end, it is definitely worth it. When you experienced trauma/abuse you did not have a choice whether it happened or not. Even if you feel for some reason that you did, you couldn’t have as you were only a child. But now you can choose to re-claim your life and heal.
