Trauma is hell on earth. Trauma resolved is a gift from the gods.― Peter A. Levine, Clinical Psychologist, Author
Living decades beyond Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) does not automatically resolve the deep impact of trauma. I wish longevity alone removed the residue of trauma; that each passing day diminished patterns of self-doubt into oblivion.
My experience has taught me that resolving trauma is a practice – more akin to endurance training than a gift from the gods. And like endurance training, some days are nearly unbearable and bring me to my knees. The key word being “nearly.” Even the worst days pass.
