I think a lot of people assume trauma isn’t relevant to them. But trauma is kind of like Buddhism…you know how in Buddhism, everyone is a Buddha whether they realize it or not? Similarly, no one gets through life without some physical or interpersonal injury that is so painful or overwhelming, it exceeds our ability to effectively cope with it.
It’s not a “bad thing” that needs to be avoided or denied…it just is. It’s just part of the admission ticket to this thing we call life.
