Healing Emotional and Psychological “ Life Trauma ”Symptoms, Treatment, and Recovery
Whether the “Life Trauma” happened years ago or yesterday, you can heal and move forward N.O.W. with the knowledge that every person has the capacity for wellness.
What is “Life Trauma?”
Emotional and psychological trauma is “Life Trauma.”
“Life Trauma” is the result of extraordinarily stressful events that shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless and vulnerable in a dangerous world.
Traumatic experiences often involve a threat to life or safety, but any situation that leaves you feeling overwhelmed and alone can be traumatic, even if it doesn’t involve physical harm. It’s not the objective facts that determine whether an event is traumatic, but your subjective emotional experience of the event. What may be stressful or traumatic to one person my not be for someone else. Being bit by a large dog at the age of three may be traumatic for a small child, but it is a work related injury for a dog catcher.
Only you know what feels stressful and traumatic to you!!!
A stressful event is most likely to be traumatic if:
- It happened unexpectedly.
- You were unprepared for it.
- You felt powerless to prevent it.
“Life trauma” can be caused by single-blow, one-time events, such as a sudden lost of a child or a life changing car accident, a natural disaster, or a violent attack. Trauma can also stem from ongoing, relentless stress, such as living in a crime-ridden neighborhood or struggling with cancer.
Commonly overlooked sources of “Life Trauma:”
- Falls or sports injuries
- The sudden death of someone close
- An auto accident
- The breakup of a significant relationship
- A humiliating or deeply disappointing experience
- The discovery of a life-threatening illness or disabling condition
Factors that may increase your vulnerability to
Not all potentially traumatic events lead to lasting emotional and psychological experience. Some people rebound quickly from even the most tragic and shocking experiences. Others are devastated by experiences that, on the surface, appear to be less upsetting.
A number of risk factors make people susceptible to emotional and psychological trauma. People are more likely to be traumatized by a stressful experience if they’re already under a heavy stress load or have recently suffered a series of losses. People are also more likely to be traumatized by a new situation if they’ve been traumatized before – especially if the earlier trauma occurred in childhood.
Traumatic experiences in childhood can have a severe and long-lasting effect. Children who have been traumatized see the world as a frightening and dangerous place. When childhood trauma is not resolved, this fundamental sense of fear and helplessness carries over into adulthood, setting the stage for further trauma. Childhood trauma results from anything that disrupts a child’s sense of safety and security, including:
- Sexual, physical, or verbal abuse
- Domestic violence
What is the difference between stress and emotional or psychological trauma?
Trauma is stress run amuck. Stress dis-regulates our nervous systems – but for only a relatively short period of time. Within a few days or weeks, our nervous systems calm down and we revert to a normal state of equilibrium. This return to normalcy is not the case when we have been traumatized. One way to tell the difference between stress and emotional trauma is by looking at the outcome – how much residual effect an upsetting event is having on our lives, relationships, and overall functioning. Traumatic distress can be distinguished from routine stress by assessing the following:
- how quickly upset is triggered
- how frequently upset is triggered
- how intensely threatening the source of the upset is
- how long upset lasts
- how long it takes to calm down
If we can communicate our distress to people who care about us and can respond adequately, and if we return to a state of equilibrium following a stressful event, we are in the realm of stress. If we become frozen in a state of active emotional intensity, we are experiencing an emotional trauma – even though sometimes we may not be consciously aware of the level of distress we are experiencing. It is very important to note the level of emotional upset when trying to tell the story of the traumatic event. If you are experiencing the upset as if you were back at the event then stop!!! You need help with the trauma.
What are the symptoms of emotional “Life Trauma?”
There are common effects or conditions that may occur following a traumatic event. Sometimes these responses can be delayed, for months or even years after the event. Often, people do not even initially associate their symptoms with the precipitating trauma. The following are symptoms that may result from a more commonplace, unresolved trauma, especially if there were earlier, overwhelming life experiences:
- Difficulties in sleeping and eating (more or less than)
- Sexual dysfunction
- Fight or flight state
- Chronic, unexplained pain
- Physical boundary issues
- Depression, spontaneous crying, despair and hopelessness
- Anxiety /panic
- Feeling out of control (need to be in control)
- Fearfulness (fear of the future)
- Feeling over whelmed (unable to go forward with task and plans)
- Poor self image/self worth
- Irritability, angry and resentment (blaming others)
- Memory lapses
- Difficulty making decisions
- Decreased ability to concentrate
- Feeling distracted
- Difficulty in focusing
- Avoidance of risks and change
The Healing Process:
First and foremost, (Emotions)
Our emotions connect us to others and ourselves!
Emotions are the building blocks of every relationship in your life, and the driving force for all of our decisions. The power of those emotions cannot be overlooked. Emotions influence the way you relate and react to others—often without your awareness. If you are not keenly aware of the emotions you are experiencing internally and how you are communicating this externally, then you are not in control of your life.

A Beggar Had Been
Sitting by the side of the road
for over thirty years…
One Day a stranger walked by.
“Spare some change?” mumbled the beggar,
“I have nothing to give you’” said the stranger.
Then he asked: “What’s that you’re sitting on?” “Nothing,” replied the beggar.
“Just an old box. I’ve been sitting on it for as long as I can remember.” “Ever look inside?” asked the stranger. “No,” said the beggar. “What’s the point, there’s nothing in there. “Have a look inside, “insisted the stranger. The beggar, reluctantly, managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold.
I am that stranger who has nothing to give you and who is telling you to look inside. Not inside the box, as in the parable, but somewhere even closer: inside yourself.
