A child feels more secure in the family. However, the family is not the absolute institution where everything seems perfect. Most of the time, the family forms the first institution where the child can face the trauma. How parents treat their children, how close they keep their children, how understanding they are, or on the other hand, how abusive they can be, how intolerant they can be, decides in what mental state a child would be for the rest of the life.
The cause of family trauma can be:
- Communication gap
- Generation gap
- Alcohol addiction in family
- Anger issues
- Frequent arguments
If this feels like your issue, we got you a few solutions you can take on:
- Practice distraction
When nothing works, distraction does. Try focus on the problems in the family, but the better side of the life itself. We won’t say, it’ll be easier, but you got to start. Try going out for a walk, talking to friends on some other matters, focusing on your studies or job. In any way, you could practice distracting from your regular family disturbances.
- Try Communicating
The major issue in families is that nobody wants to communicate the other side of the story to none. Try to cover this gap. Once, family members are willing to listen to each other’s aspect, the issues can be resolved. It helps in overcoming the major cause of trauma.
- Rebuild emotional energy
The last and least you can do is to build or re-build your emotional energy. Accept the circumstances of the family and believe that ups and downs is part of life. You got to acknowledge the situation and build strong resistance so that it does not get to your mental health.
In the chronic symptoms of mental anxiety and trauma, you must consult the professional doctor who can help you relive your life all over again.
