what they are, how they feel and how to cope
Here at art of trauma, you will find articles about trauma healing and the path back to the self, written by a survivor, for survivors.
As well as the articles, you can read my own creative writing, which I have grouped into
I chose these categories because I believe it is equally important to explore both the light and the darkness in ourselves so we can become whole.
I write for the ones who never quite fit. Who cut off parts of themselves trying to be like the rest. The ones who are always too much, but never quite enough.
I write for the ones who tie themselves in knots and turn themselves down. Who have lived a thousand lives all in their head. Who imagine the worst not because it might happen, but because it already did. Who see themselves through a lens of shame. Who choke on the thick fog of their emotions and bleed from deep invisible wounds.
I write for the ones who feel more alone in a crowd. Who taste the sweetness of sorrow and the bitterness of joy, and long for a home far, far away from here.
This is a story of light and shadow. Of healing and releasing trauma. Of finding all the beauty in suffering.
I want to reflect back to you your own light, so that you may see yourself in all your magnificence.
