In the above video, I discussed the question of which pain is worse. The one that happens in childhood or the hurt that occurred later in life. Is my pain more intense because I was hurt in childhood but the woman who experienced her pain in adult life has an easier time?
Trauma is destructive whenever it happens and it is dangerous to compare. However, childhood trauma causes so much more harm because it happens as the brain is still developing.
Nevertheless, whenever the trauma happens you deserve to have the opportunity to find healing. Get the help of someone who can assist you in building healthy coping mechanisms that work for you.
