How to Deal with Trauma 

Trauma is a prevalent issue that affects many people, but it is also something that can be dealt with. It’s important to know how to deal with childhood trauma or any other so as to not let it mess up your life. The best way to start this process is by allowing yourself to feel the emotions you have been suppressing for so long. In fact, according to psychiatrist Bessel van der Kolk, “The brain cannot tell the difference between what’s happening now and what happened then.” Hence, allowing yourself to feel those emotions will help you process them and move on.
