Impact of Childhood Trauma in Adulthood
Childhood trauma dysregulates the brain, emotions, and body. It is a stress response that makes us spaced out, checked out, dissociated, numb, and overreactive. The brain becomes foggy. One becomes somatically disconnected and half unconscious at crucial moments. Susceptible to repeating similar mistakes. Conscious choices are tough to make.
Childhood trauma comes with painful amounts of developmental deficits. It’s like missing the memo on how to be human in this world. The sense of self, needs, desires, and what one wants to be in life is foggy. The inner world feels so complex and confusing that sharing it is unsettling. One moves between feeling special and unworthy.
Childhood trauma creates an inner world that is chronically unsafe. One is constantly scanning the environment for danger. And yet continually missing red flags. Living in constant abuse suppresses the body’s wisdom and knowing, which leads to a lack of self-trust and inability to discern. One feels more helpless than others and in continual need of external inputs.
Dysregulated brain makes cognitive functions like learning, reading, concentrating, analyzing, problem-solving, and perceiving quite challenging. This makes learning from our mistakes harder. Academic success and vocation planning do not come easy.
Childhood trauma is speaking a socially awkward language. Groups are particularly difficult. It is easier to be in a one-on-one setting. One is less inclined to approach or take the initiative. Task-oriented settings are easier than unstructured ones.
Childhood trauma impairs the ability to love, belong, resolve conflicts, ask for what one needs, draw boundaries, and feel lovable. Relationship attachment patterns are distorted. There is a tendency to avoid, fight, flee, freeze when things go wrong.
