Your Trauma Made You Stronger – Right?

Don't Lose Hope

Your trauma made you stronger.”

No. My trauma left me traumatized.

My trauma left me bludgeoned and bleeding.

It left me totally destroyed from endless triggers and constant broken sleep.

It left empty, and scared, and unable to trust …

My partner.

The world.

Afraid to trust myself.

It left me floundering and dealing with emotions so intense.

I lost touch with who I was. I’m a shell of my old self.

Yes, perhaps I’m still here … but I’m different inside.

Now I’m fragile and weak.

I am broken – not strong.

“After what she’s been through, there really should be ‘Crime Scene’ tape around her heart.” – John Mark Green
