I want to recommend this book to you, it talks about trauma as something that we must accept and work to heal and that can help all of us survivors to continue with our lives.
Book: El cuerpo lleva la cuenta
Author: Bessel van der Kolk
A trauma is an event that marks your life, to which many human beings have been exposed, through sexual abuse, wars, mistreatment, loss of family members, accidents and many other causes. But our challenge is to continue to grow despite these overwhelming experiences. To speak with the truth, accept our reality and begin to channel all our emotions, to allow us to heal.
It is a tedious, painful and time-consuming task that takes a lot of time and willpower. But no matter how difficult our situation is, there is always a way to overcome it, to get up and to move forward.
