I used to think of trauma as something people should try to release quickly.
Yet, trauma serves a purpose. Trauma helps you protect yourself while you are still vulnerable and coping. And when the time is right, and you are now strengthened in other areas that will support you releasing trauma, then it's time to let it go.
So here is one of my own examples.
I had toe joint replacement, since all the cartalidge was gone and I didn't want to fuse my toe, which gave me no flexibility. So I was thankful that waiting 20 years provided a better solution where I could function better.
I've only had one surgery before in my life, and that was over 30 years ago. It was nothing compared to this. I tend to faint, since I can feel all the emotions in my body, and my coping mechanism is to faint.
So anyway, after surgery, which went very well, I could feel the trauma in my foot. I did my healing, which minimized the pain, and helped my foot heal faster. And yet I would jump before anyone even came close to my foot.
I finally realized that I held onto the trauma. I then realized that the trauma was helping me ensure that I took care of my foot in a very special way, to ensure that the stitches healed and that my body had time to accept the replacement.
After a few weeks, I realized that I was not ready to let go of most of the trauma. It was interested feeling the trauma leave my foot and I could feel my foot again.
So ask yourself, are you ready to release your trauma? Or is it still protecting you? Ask what does the trauma need in order to heal itself.
