“There is no timestamp on trauma. There isn’t a formula that you can insert yourself into to get from horror to healed. Be patient. Take up space. Let your journey be the balm.” – Dawn Serra
Trauma is a tough nut to crack. Some people can heal rapidly from a traumatic event. Others, like myself, take way longer. This quote is so important for those who have a loved one who has been through trauma or for someone just finding about a traumatic event from their past. One has to be selfish to be able to heal from the various types of trauma. I need to be patient with myself and take my journey one day, one hour, on minute, and one second at a time.
