There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds."
― Laurell K. Hamilton, Mistral's Kiss
If there is anything certain in our lives, then it is uncertainty. We never know what the next moment has in its fold: some moments bring joy, while some cause us pain. This is life, and we cannot control our life. If we enjoy the happy moments, we should always be ready to feel the pain. But not all are strong enough to bear the harsh reality of life. Therefore, many people who have gone through traumas are not able to lead their lives normally.
Trauma means emotionally painful experiences and situation, which are overwhelming. There may be various reasons of a trauma: it can result from events that cause emotional, physical, and psychological distress or harm such as:
- Natural disasters
- Fighting in wars
- Witnessing traumatic events
Whatever is the cause of trauma, no one is bound to suffer for many years to come. Usually, mild traumatic emotions heal naturally. But immediate mediation is required if there is a severe trauma involved. Anyone who experienced trauma must share their feelings with friends and family members. It has been observed that sharing helps a lot to overcome from a trauma. Having a good support system helps the victims cope with traumatic experiences. Don't let the the victim struggle all alone.
Meditation and yoga are extremely helpful in the recovery from any kind of trauma. Mediation makes the mind stronger and provides the person with strength to deal with traumatic stress. And yoga provides strength and helps recover from trauma. Both meditation and yoga, if combined together, offer significant results in combating with post traumatic stress andnaturally heal digestive problems or any other ailment.
If someone in your family is suffering from traumatic stress, it is your duty to help him/her lead a normal life again. If the victim is suffering from a severe trauma, you should seek outside help. As Audrey Hepburn said, "The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters." Life is all about sharing love, joy, and happiness. You should provide full support to the victim of trauma in your family so that he/she can forget the traumatic past and feel the joy of life again. After all, everyone deserves to be happy.
