My experience with residential trauma therapy

I have always felt disconnected to the world around me, like I’m an outsider looking in. Even though on the surface I might look like I’m doing okay, inside I had a deep fear that prevented me from really engaging with life. That all changed when I started going to residential trauma therapy.

At first, it was daunting to be completely surrounded by strangers and going through intense therapies, but eventually I opened up about my experiences and found understanding and trust with the other patients as well as the counselors. It took lots of hard work, but over time we were all able to process and work through our traumas together.

What I realized is that even though we were all coming from different backgrounds and experiences, we all had similar emotional struggles due to our traumas. It was healing to come away knowing that I wasn’t alone in struggling with these feelings of disconnection and pain. The journey wasn’t easy but it was worth it, because now I feel more connected to both myself and the world around me.
