Early shame experiences stored as Trauma?
From Benne Brown:
“After studying Dr. Uram’s work, I believe it’s possible that many of our early shame experiences, especially with parents and caregivers, were stored in our brains as traumas.
This is why we often have such painful bodily reactions when we feel criticized, ridiculed, rejected and shamed.
Dr. Uram explains that the brain does not differentiate between overt or big trauma and covert or small, quiet trauma—it just registers the event as “a threat that we can’t control.”
My two cents: I believe some emotions especially shame, enlarge our Trauma, our PTSD symptoms and the duration of our suffering.
My childhood trauma is the bed all other traumas in my life lay in.
My childhood trauma in fact, made me much more vulnerable for other traumas to happen.
Childhood trauma has crippled my resilience to handle betrayal.
Even now, if someone betrays me, they are done for life.
I have healed a couple of times but many behaviors and fears still operate.
