Coping with Trauma

“Hello there! I’m here to provide you with a bit of information on coping with trauma. I would like to remind you that suggestions on this post should not be taken as medical advice, legal advice, therapy, etc. or as a one-size-fits-all approach.  Keep in mind that every individual’s journey of  experiencing and navigating through stress or trauma is distinctive because you are one of a kind and no person is truly like you!  Experiencing abuse in any form is NOT OKAY, but what you are experiencing as a result of abuse is valid.  Please know that healing is not a formula and is not for anyone else to define for you. You do you, and you follow all that you need to follow, to help yourself. If you need additional resources or just someone to talk to, feel free to reach out to Imaara Foundation."

In the aftermath of any kind of abuse, what is important is the road to recovery and surviving. After trauma, what one needs to do is find safe spaces, be it with friends, or your professors, a romantic partner or therapist – which becomes the beginning of your recovery. It is important to always remember that while surviving through the trauma is the beginning of a healing process; your survival is not necessarily your recovery.
