Psychology Explains How Trauma Creates Mental Illness
5. Be Aware of Your Emotional Triggers
If watching scary movies bothers you, then don’t watch them. When you know something will cause discomfort, you avoid it. By reducing your emotional triggers, you can help to reduce your episodes.
Final Thoughts on Mental Illness That Results From Trauma
The things that happened to you in your past help to define you as a person. Even abuse and trauma can help you do great things. It’s time to start acknowledging that your experiences are not your fault, and you can process what happened and move past them.
While you can’t erase the events that caused you so much pain, you can desensitize them so they don’t have as much effect. You can manage your mental illness and live a happy and productive life, but it all starts with a journey towards healing from your past.
