“Your Trauma Made You Stronger”
Bullshit. Let's be real about this. Trauma makes people traumatized. It can make you feel weak, angry, irritable, hopeless, and numb. It can give you memory loss, anxiety, depression, loss of appetite, and sleepless nights. It gives you mood swings, nightmares, and other health issues.
Trauma didn't make you stronger, you did. You picked yourself up. You got you out of that place that trauma brought you to. You dealt with things that were not your fault. Stop giving credit to the trauma- it's a false narrative.
Your trauma is not a reflection of who you are.
I'm sorry that anyone made you feel this way.
Your trauma does not define your worth.
You will get through this.
It wasn't your fault.
