Repressed Sexual Trauma

A large majority of people who have experienced extreme forms of trauma have completely repressed memories of what has occurred.

The problem with not identifying and uprooting such traumas is that they will run a person’s life from the shadows and they will have no idea why they do certain things like sabotaging their life or why they feel stuck as if they are going in circles.

This topic is very stigmatized and I think it’s time we normalize the conversation because so many people suffer behind closed doors in falsely internalized shame.

Sexual trauma can be everything from violent physical trauma to a disrespect of ones own body, to ancestral trauma that has nothing to do with this life.
