Unresolved trauma can have a significant impact on a person’s mental and emotional well-being. It can prevent them from fully enjoying life. Trauma refers to a distressing event or experience that can have long-term effects on a person’s mental and emotional health. When a person experiences trauma, their brain and body go into a state of fight, flight, or freeze. This is a natural response to a perceived threat. While this response is meant to protect the individual, if it becomes chronic or is not properly resolved, it can lead to physical and emotional symptoms. And that can interfere with a person’s ability to enjoy life.
Some common ways that unresolved trauma can affect a person’s enjoyment of life include:
- Chronic stress which interferes with your ability to relax and enjoy life.
