Has a recent or past traumatic incident left you feeling numb, isolated, or helpless?
Have you encountered a life-threatening event and are trying your best to move forward, but are struggling with feelings of insecurity, fear, or helplessness?
Have you been caught off guard by memories from your past that you thought were buried and forgotten? Do you feel this trauma has come back to haunt you and that it affects your present-day quality of life?
You may find yourself:
- avoiding things you used to enjoy
- reacting out of fear more often
- feeling more anxious than usual
Maybe you didn't witness the upsetting event firsthand, but your loved one did and now you wonder why it's affecting you personally in such a severe way.
Or maybe you feel unable to trust others and, as a result, are tending to isolate?
All of this is makes relationships difficult to manage. You're finding this affects not only your personal life, but your interactions at school or work as well.
This self-imposed isolation has left you feeling disconnected, alone, and depressed.
