When you hear the word "trauma" you might be thinking, “Well, that doesn’t apply to me. I’ve never been the victim of a violent crime or in a war.” But defining any psychological trauma can be hard because it’s such an individual experience. I’ve been working with people for over 35 years, and I can tell you that what traumatizes you, might not traumatize someone else. This is why you might not realize you’re dealing with unhealed trauma, because you or someone else might be minimizing your experience: “I’m over-reacting, that wasn’t a big deal” or “I grew up in the same house you did, and it didn’t bother me!” Today I’m going to cover the signs of unhealed trauma and how it might be ruining your relationship.
