    I like to have conversations w my inner child, if that makes sense. I just try and comfort them and also do something once in a while that they would enjoy. Also, talking it all through with someone really helps to accept it, at least it helped me.

      I'm terrified to heal them. I know they are angry. And I'm afraid of what they are capable of. But I'll definitely take this advice, thank you so much!

        I'm not sure what kind of person you are, for me to get over the fear of something, I have to do it. But you may need to wait until you're ready, take your time. And accepting them as they are, giving and showing them some love is the key. And empathize with them. Let them know that youre there for them. Remember it's you. I wish you luck 🥰 and I'm so sorry that you had to go through all of that.

    Y'know I'm gonna be honest with you, childhood trauma isn't easy to deal with nor it'll ever be; not saying it's impossible to heal but it just takes a lot of time and patience especially with yourself and thoughts. With me I was abused when I was younger and I can't let it go everyday I think about it and I often have night terrors but over the years they loosen up and soon enough they'll mellow out, how I got through my pain I just forgave myself for what happened that I couldn't do anything because that was the past and it stays no matter what but no matter you gotta remember that you've changed, you learned how to become a better person or at least you've learned how to deal with those kind situations no matter how bad that trauma was you've also gotta remember people are there, to relate or at least listen but seriously all you need is time and patience along with forgiveness for yourself, my advice you can take it with a grain of salt I know I'm not the best with this kind of thing but I hope it helps

    For me what helped is time, therapy, and prayer. Those 3 together work like a charm.

    I think it's always good to talk about it with someone who can relate. You can message me if you want. We might have something in common
