Post Traumatic Relationship Disorder | The Aftermath of Toxic Friends, Lovers & Family
Updated: Jan 31
Jhenè, sis... I can relate.
what a lot of people fail to realize is that trauma surpasses just the extremes that we are used to hearing about. a trauma is any situation that has left you spiritually, emotionally, physically or psychologically scarred.
the aftermath of a trauma may differ but it’s mostly consistent...
fear of repetition
difficulty coping with change
trouble receiving help/healing
lack of trust
all signs that trauma has occurred.
all signs of someone who has dealt with a bad relationship of some sort
Can Relationships Be Traumatic?
A toxic friendship can leave you lonely by choice.
A toxic relationship can have you insecure and paranoid
A toxic kinship can make you distrustful of EVERYdamnBODY... cause if yo own family ain’t good for you, it’ll have you heavily contemplating who is
even in moments where you feel like you’re 100% ready to grow past the trauma, it could still haunt your new beginnings
Notice how you may have been in and out of relationships ... Can’t keep a friend long enough to remember their phone numbers... have you moved on from familial differences but the rest of the family hasn’t?
Trauma follows but donot allow it to chase
chase you away from better friends
chase you away from healthy love
chase you away from obtaining what you want out of a family
Favor, Peace & Blessings
