The Path to Healing

It is not an easy road to healing. Survivors of trauma must come to terms with the full impact of their experiences, including the isolation and fractured sense of self they feel.

You must also acknowledge the hurt, anger and sadness that you are feeling. This can be uncomfortable, but it’s crucial.

You can practice this by keeping a journal. Keep a journal to record your feelings and any thoughts you have.

You can keep track of how you are doing and remind yourself that feelings change.

Talking to someone to support you if you are struggling with shame is a great idea. This can include a counselor, family member or close friend who can understand your pain and help you to move forward.
