I’ve been surprised to learn recently that healing from trauma can be very painful and uncomfortable. I had hoped it would be cathartic.

    What an entire mood. Healing for me has caused me to be more emotionally volatile and brought up so many painful emotions

    Oh heck yeah it’s painful for me too… but rn after accepting the pain, I’m at a point that it’s not too painful anymore, so that stage is def a hard (but impermanent) transition

    THIS. I thought that getting better and talking abt it etc would feel super good, but it ends with me bawling after every therapy session.... after a while, though, you feel lots better! Don't give up!!
