Trauma

You are the main character, the protagonist, in your life story. And your story may have chapters of upheaval, of trauma.

Trauma can be big or small, loud or quiet, stunningly fast or achingly long and slow. One-time or repeated. All of the above.

Trauma is:

1. A serious injury or shock to the body, as from violence or an accident.

2. An emotional wound or shock that creates substantial, lasting damage to the psychological development of a person, often leading to neurosis.

3. An event or situation that causes great distress and disruption.

Trauma can come in many forms—abuse, accident, betrayal, bullying, catastrophic event—and that’s just the beginning of the alphabet.
