When we write things down, it tends to have an affect on us that we otherwise wouldn’t just typing it up or speaking it to someone. Writing down our trauma gives us the chance to really see it for what it is. We can grieve that trauma but we can also learn to live again in the midst of that trauma. The trauma that you write about will give you insight and make your realize that you can have a normal life again.
