Why do Past Traumas Affect me Now?
Trauma can be anything that disturbs or causes distress in one’s life. Just as breaking one’s arm is a physical trauma, humans experience emotional trauma from many different experiences. These experiences could include loss, relationship hurts, death of a loved one, emotional abuse, loneliness, violence, or addiction, to name a few.
Restorations Therapy Centers (RTC) belief is that no trauma is too small. What may seem insignificant to one, could cause traumatic emotional pain to another, for every person is different. Many people ignore emotional wounds, hoping they will disappear. Sadly this often does not happen, and those wounds arise influencing many parts of one’s life. Addictions may begin as an attempt to avoid the pain or memories of trauma. If and how one chooses to deal with emotional hurts will influence one’s holistic health, not just emotional health.
Signs of unresolved trauma may include anxiety, depression, panic attacks, hyperactivity, feeling numb or disconnected, negative relationship patterns, emotional withdrawal, and addiction. Finding a safe place to face and process one’s trauma can lead to a freedom in life, unhindered by the emotional pains of the past. Restorations Therapy Center focuses on sexual addictive wounds, providing recovery to addictive behaviors, all while guiding clients through the process of healing unresolved trauma wounds. RTC recognizes this holistic approach as the ultimate key to long-term and true sexual health restoration.
