Trauma

Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event(s) that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness, diminishes their sense of self and their ability to feel a full range of emotions and experiences.

If you continue to carry bricks from your past, you will end up building the same house.  It has been suggested that there are three types of traumas; (1) Acute trauma - resulting from a single incident. (2) Chronic trauma - repeated and prolonged exposure, such as domestic violence or abuse. (3) Complex trauma - exposure to varied and multiple traumatic events, often of an invasive, interpersonal nature.
