Trauma can come into our lives through abuse, assault, exposure to violence, injury, life-threatening accident, war, terrorism, etc. People can suffer from the effects of individual and collective trauma.
Finding Hope is a safe space to share your trauma and turn toward hope. This month's theme will focus on setting and maintaining boundaries to support healing.
So often, trauma survivors don't talk about our trauma because we don't want to worry our loved ones. When we do talk about it, we are often met with awkward silence or "good-intentioned" appeals to look on the bright side. By sharing our stories, we can learn from each other and understand that we are not alone.
For those of us who have experienced trauma, the traumatic experience will always be part of our lives but doesn’t have to define our lives.
