We are all, always, being subjected to some kind of upset – some more severe, some more pertaining than others.
There are 2 distinct definitions for trauma as a noun that can be found from a dictionary source:
1. a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. An emotional shock following a stressful event or physical injury.
Synonyms: disturbance. disorder. jolt. ordeal. trial. trouble. worry. anxiety. burden. adversity. hardship.
And the associations of these may lead to: shock. upheaval. distress. stress. strain. pain. anguish. upset. suffering. agony. misery. sorrow. grief. heartache. heart break.
2. (medical) any injury, damage, hurt, wound, sore, bruise, cut, laceration, lesion, abrasion, or contusion.
Think about your day. What have you experienced today?
Can you reference a recent time when you experienced any of these?
The accumulative affect is at work. So even though today may only feel slightly stressful, and may only have a few distressing occurrences – in time, these add up.
Then there are shared traumas – among family members, classmates, neighbors, friends, strangers.
There is local trauma, and specific trauma. Religious trauma and Historical trauma. Cultural trauma, Gender trauma, Ethnic trauma, and Environmental trauma. There is human trauma, and there is soul trauma.
Yes, we are resilient. We are becoming normalized to it. We are also fighting it.
No matter the trigger or hook, no matter the degree of devastation or not – we are subjected. Whether we claim it or not – it’s there. It is present. It is inside of us.
We have a sound principal inside of us – to be free, to be right, to be well. It is our duty and our responsibility – to safeguard our authenticity. To release what does not serve us, that which is not necessary.
