“There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.” -Laurell K. Hamilton
SCARS you cannot see are the hardest to heal. You second-guess everything. You cannot recognize yourself. You just made it all up. You are constantly wondering if there even was any trauma at all. Bargaining…telling yourself, there was NO Trauma, and NO abuse as you rationalize your pain, leading you into a whirlwind of doubts, all while RELIVING the agony. You are so ANGRY at everything and everyone. You burst out without reason to protect yourself. Yet you still feel uneasy and fearful, wanting to punch someone, scream, or throw things out the window. YOU crumble in fear as you hear the door slam shut; the yelling, the smashing dishes, the rage in the eyes as you were assaulted. You remember the bruising, the scars, the insults, and the threats. You always hoped that it would just stop, but it never does.
Every waking second hurts…you walk around in a daze; wishing to crawl back into bed and curl into a ball, hoping to sleep the pain away. You NEVER imagined that your pain, sadness, anxiety, and stress wouldend up in a cycle of lingering thoughts that would shatter your everyday life.
Triggers haunt you as your boss calls you into his office and you FREEZE, not understanding why. You question it. Fear sets in and you feel out of control. You were finally starting to normalize your life. You were coming out of the pain, the denial, and the feelings of helplessness. But JUST like that, you are right back in a pit of self-blame, gas-lighting yourself to toxic shame. YOU do not want to live the rest of your life feeling trapped in this nightmare.
