"If you have experienced trauma, you have sustained a "mental injury". Say you broke your leg. Would you expect to wake up the next day and be able to start running? To go around like normal? Of course not. That would be crazy. The same with a mental injury. It takes time to heal." - Dr. Henry Venter, Psychologist
It's common for us to feel frustrated about this.
Sometimes we think that after a trauma, we can just "get over it" and be fine right away with the proper mindset. But dang, in reality our brains have actually changed how they are functioning. It's gonna take some time (and maybe some healing exercises!) to fix any injury.
That's okay. :) It's normal!
We just gotta have some grace for ourselves, and be patient.
We can do this.
