How Trauma Victims Act Out

As we heal from our trauma, we learn many new words and phrases like gaslighting, narcissism, and trigger. It’s freeing to name the uncomfortable feelings rooted in our gut for so long. It’s as if a light has been shed on our darkest places. We begin to see that we weren’t the problem after all.
