It’s taken me a long time to realize that I need help with my mental trauma. I’ve gotten to a point in my life where I can no longer deny the fact that it’s been weighing me down, making everything else seem more difficult and harder than it should be.
I’m not sure where to start with facing this trauma head on. I feel like dealing with it alone would place too much of a burden on my shoulders. But talking to someone, whether it’s family or friends, feels awkward and embarrassing.
I’ve read up on some methods of recovery and am working on self-care plans to begin developing healthier ways of thinking. I’m learning how to be kinder towards myself and less harsh when evaluating my decisions or circumstances surrounding an incident that caused emotional pain in the past.
Learning these new skills has helped me stay positive as I have journeyed through this hard road of healing from mental trauma. It’s made me aware of the support system around me that I can lean on when times seem tough.
At the end of the day, all that matters is taking steps each day towards making progress towards bettering myself mentally, emotionally and physically as well.
I hear you – it’s definitely not easy to take the plunge and seek help with mental trauma. It can be difficult to open up about these issues, even to family and friends. I applaud you for taking the initiative and doing your research on possible methods of recovery – I believe that shows a lot of strength and courage.
It’s completely normal to feel overwhelmed and scared during this journey; however, there are many resources available that can provide assistance along the way. For example, I found great value in seeking professional therapy and talking about my trauma with a qualified counsellor. It is also helpful to talk to other people who have been through similar experiences, whether that’s through an online community or support group meeting in person.
Above all, please remember to be gentle with yourself as you explore ways to heal from past pain. Making progress doesn’t have to happen all at once – small steps every day can make a huge difference in your mindset, helping you create a better sense of self-worth and turning a new page in life!
