Trauma and PTSD: Navigating the Path to Healing
Welcome to DeShields Behavioral Wellness, a place where you can find support and guidance on your journey towards healing and personal growth. I’m here to share some insights on a topic that touches the lives of many individuals: trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Understanding Trauma: Unpacking the Impact
Trauma is a powerful experience that can leave lasting emotional and psychological scars. It can stem from a variety of sources, including childhood events, accidents, natural disasters, abuse, and more. When we experience trauma, our sense of safety and trust in the world is shattered, often leading to feelings of fear, helplessness, and confusion.
Trauma can alter our perception of reality, leaving us feeling disconnected from ourselves and others.
The Ripple Effect: How Trauma Impacts Our Lives
Trauma can have a profound impact on our lives. It changes the way we view the world and ourselves. For many, trauma can create a state of constant hypervigilance, where we’re on high alert for potential threats. It’s like living in a world where the next knock on the door could bring more danger. This heightened state of arousal can be exhausting and isolating.

Grieving What Was Lost: Coping with Childhood Trauma
Childhood trauma has a unique way of shaping our identities and how we navigate the world as adults. We often find ourselves grieving the loss of what could have been a normal childhood free from the weight of secrecy and fear.
Acceptance doesn’t mean we’re okay with what happened; it’s about acknowledging that the past can’t be changed and finding ways to move forward with the scars we carry.
The Journey of Self-Esteem: Building a Strong Foundation
Self-esteem plays a significant role in how we navigate our relationships and the world around us. Low self-esteem can lead us to question our worth, allowing us to accept less than we deserve. It’s important to recognize that healthy self-esteem is a journey that requires introspection and self-compassion. Developing a secure sense of self allows us to set healthy boundaries and attract relationships that align with our true values.
Transforming Pain into Growth: The Healing Process
Healing from trauma is a transformative process that requires patience and support. Through therapy and self-discovery, we can challenge negative self-talk and reclaim our sense of self-worth. The journey may have its ups and downs, but each step forward is a victory worth celebrating. As we heal, we learn to rewrite our narrative and find strength in our resilience.
